December 30, 2016 – Igbo Traders & Fulani Herdsmen Clashed At Gariki Market In Enugu Over 100 Naira, 2 Killed

At least 2 persons died on Wednesday at the popular Gariki Market in Enugu.

Trouble started when a Fulani man identified as Ali stormed the abattoir section of the market with a cow.

He met a young Igbo man, Ifeanyi working as an attendant to slaughter the cow.

Shortly after Ali slaughtered the cow, he gave Ifeanyi N400 instead of the N500 fee they both agreed on.

When the young Igbo man requested for his balance, Ali turned him down.

The misunderstanding later resulted in a physical battle between the two.

In the process, Ali who is said to be a Fulani herdsman pulled out his dagger and stabbed Ifeanyi on the stomach. He reportedly slumped and died on the spot.

While Ali was trying to escape from the market, angry Igbo traders grabbed him and lynched him in turn.

Angry Igbo traders later mobilized to burn down a mosque located inside Gariki market.

  1. Chase and kill those crazies out of town! its too much for Fulani’s, take up your rams and defend yourselves guys,God will not come to defend you.

  2. Too bad, just cos of #100 a man had to loose his life. They are both wrong in this but the Mr Ali took it too far,I wonder why they are always violent even with matters that could be resolved. The Enugu state govmnt needs to be fully involved in this before it gets more worst that it already is.

  3. I SO MUCH HATE THE WORD THAT SAYS ‘WE ARE ONE NIGERIA’. ONE NIGERIA WITH THOSE STUPID SET OF PEOPLE? NEVER. THANK GOD HE WAS KILLED TOO.
