Fulani Hausa Clash in Sokoto Clash

Following a conflict between the Fulani and Hausa residents of Gwadabawa, Sokoto State, there was tension in the community.

Many locals on both sides were killed, including a security operative.

Aminu Gwadabawa, a local official, told VOA Hausa in an interview monitored by our correspondent on Saturday that: “People in the area were living in fear, as the conflict even claimed the life of a soldier.”

“They are afraid of reprisal attacks from the Fulani bandits.”

“A survivor said, the Fulani attacked my relation with knives. But he has spiritual powers that would not allow sharp objects to pierce his skin.

“So they intensified the attack on him and succeeded in hacking his head off his body.”
