Bwari Community Clash: FCTA Imposes Indefinite Curfew
Following the crisis that erupted between two cult groups on Sunday Christmas Eve, the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA is not taking any chances.
The administration on Monday imposed a 12-hour indefinite curfew on Bwari township.
The FCTA Minister Musa Bello said that three people lost their lives to the incidence that claimed the entire ancient market of Bwari.
It was also gathered that the fire escalated due to attitude of irate arsonists who chased away the emergency workers that wanted to put out the fire.
Reports suggest the crises was as a result of disagreement over membership of the group.
Though the identity of the cultists who started the fire is still sketchy, eye witness account said that a member of the cult group who attempted renouncing his membership was stabbed and later rushed to the hospital, but eventually died on Monday morning.
His death may have sparked reprisal attacks that led to the arson of critical business in the town.
Though the FCT Administration has denied tribal and religious colouration to the story, but many believe that the traditional leadership tussle in the town must have led to the crisis.
