One person has reportedly died in an ongoing clash between Hausa and Gwari youths in Bwari, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory earlier today.
The clash was said to have erupted following the appointment of a new traditional ruler by the Gwari.

A resident who spoke on condition of anonymity, explained that his church had to terminate the Christmas service when news of the violent clash filtered in.
“The pastor quickly ended the service and asked everyone to go home; the youths were seen on the streets wielding cudgels, bottles and other weapons, the situation is tense,” he said.
The FCT police spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah confirmed the violence, adding that armed policemen had been deployed in the town to contain the crisis.
“The details of the incident is still sketchy, but our immediate objective is to contain the violence and ensure security of lives and property,” he said on the phone.
