Thugs had taken advantage of the activity to engage in a supremacy battle in the area, with many of them armed with dangerous weapons and within minutes, a fight broke out.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Kano, SP Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the incident, said the police responded to a distressed call and dispersed the armed hoodlums.

However, a few hours after the fight continued among the armed thugs, leading to a confrontation with the police.

This led to the death of one Sadiq Abdulkadir, 23 of Darmanawa quarters and Muhammad Sani, 22, of Sallari quarters.

Also, a teenager Sadiq Abdullahi,18, of Karkasara quarters was said to have died from bullet wounds when police were trying to disperse the thugs, according to residents.
