At least three people were reported killed and many others were injured in a clash between some herdsmen and cattle dealers.
The incident occured at Ngurore International Cattle Market in Adamawa State.
Mohammed Bala, a witness, told SaharaReporters that the cause of the fight was unknown.
However, he confirmed that he saw three dead bodies lying in a pool of blood, before taking to his heels to save himself.
When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Othman Abubakar, said he could not confirm the incident, because he was on his way to Saudi Arabia for this year's Hajj.
