Many were on Sunday feared killed and others injured in fresh violence in parts of Jos, Plateau State.
Houses were also reportedly burnt during the violence which spread to communities, including Dutse-Uku and Rikkos.
Confirming the violence in a statement on Sunday, the Police Public Relations Officer in Plateau State, Mr Mathias Tyopev, said security men had been drafted to quell the fight.
He said, “We have received reports of tension around Dutse Uku, Rikkos, Cele Bridge and we have mobilised our personnel to the area.

“As we speak, the area commander, Jos metropolis, is there on ground.”

A resident of the area, who identified himself as Mr Paul Musa, said there had been tension in the area since last week when a boy from Angwan Miango was found dead at a boundary between the community and neighbouring Rikkos, a community of Hausa residents.
