At least four persons were feared killed and 10 houses burnt as a result of a clash between Christians and Muslims in Babale village of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State.
The peace, hitherto enjoyed in the area, despite series of crisis that engulfed Jos, the state capital in recent times, was disrupted on Tuesday, when a car that was trying to avoid a ditch ran into a motorcycle and killed the rider and the passengers. The mayhem that followed spilled over to yesterday.
Daily Times gathered that, the Peugeot 406 station wagon, driven by one Samsudeen Mohammad Umar, of Number 6, Rikkos New Layout, was on high speed on the Jos-Bauchi road, when he noticed a ditch by the roadside, but in his bid to avoid running into it and somersaulting, knocked down the motorcycle rider and his two passengers who were Christians and residents of the village.
This however made the villagers to rush out and in seeing the gravity of the accident, some of them insisted that the ditch, which was dug by a church within that vicinity, must be closed up. The ditch was part of the safety measures put in place by the church to force drivers plying the Jos- Bauchi road to slow down and avoid knocking down their church members, an eye witness said.
