1 Feared Dead, 4 Others Injured As Abuja Natives, Soldiers Engage Over Land Dispute

ONE person has been confirmed dead while four others were injured as a result of a clash between Abuja indigenes and soldiers over land tussle at Tungan-Maje, an outskirt town of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

The situation, however, led to the blockage of ever busy Zuba-Gwagwalada road, as motorists plying the route were held in gridlock for over five hours before the intervention of some stakeholders.

A community leader, Malam Tanko Sani, who confirmed this to newsmen, said the crisis started when soldiers forcefully moved into the land and started work without the consent of the indigenes.
