Two Die Over N50 In Bayelsa Squabble
A squabble over N50 in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital has led to the death of more than two people.
The row, according to reports, allegedly began when a passenger paid a tricycle operator, better known as “Keke Napep” N100 while the tricyclist demanded N150 fee.
This led to the operator stabbing the passenger which resulted in his death.
As a result, a mob at the Yenizue-Epie area of Yenagoa where the squabble ensued then descended on the tricyclist and stoned him to death.
The incident triggered an outburst of violence between the Hausa community in Yenagoa and the inhabitants of Yenizue-Epie.
The state Governor, Diri Douye has called for a meeting between the Hausa community and the leaders of Yenizue-Epie.
