Three people that witnessed Saturday's presidential election and the eventual declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner, have paid the ultimate price.

Their lives were cut short by some soldiers in Yola after they were reportedly celebrating the electoral victory of President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in the Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The youth, who woke up to news of the re-election of Buhari for another term, poured out into the streets of major towns in the state.

However, it is the celebration in the Numan town that went bloody.

This followed an altercation between jubilant Buhari supporters with armed military men stationed near Numan Bridge.

It was gathered that the jubilant youths initially on a peaceful victory procession later became uncontrollable and disorderly as some of them attacked the military personnel who tried to tame their celebration.

The soldiers had allegedly fired warning shots into the air to warn the crowd which started advancing towards them while hurling stones.

The soldiers were said to have fired shots again, which allegedly hit some persons. Three persons were reportedly hit, while their corpses were later deposited by the soldiers in the mortuary of Numan General Hospital.
