The Councillor who represented the axis and a member of the neighborhood watch known only as Kayode were both killed.

According to a source, some residents of the affected communities and some policemen as well as other security agents were feared killed in the communal clash.
The source added that the residents were running helter skelter for safety when the invaders attacked the communities as the place had been deserted.

She, however, could not confirm reported killing of policemen or security agents in the crisis.
