Residents said armed men invaded the community and set many houses ablaze. But the police spokesman, Suleiman Nguroje, said policemen had been drafted to the area.

Eye witnesses said the crisis started from a disagreement between a Chabo and Hausa man before degenerating in to mayhem.

A visit by Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri in company of security chiefs on Friday had halted the mayhem. Speaking during the visit, Fintiri described the level of destruction as alarming, saying security men had been drafted to the area to restore normalcy. Lamenting the destruction in Tigno, which he described as commercial and agricultural hub, the governor advised the warring parties to embrace peace.
