There was commotion at the popular Banex Market in Wuse, Abuja, on Saturday when suspected thugs descended on soldiers in uniform.

Naijaonpoint learned that a group of young men were seen arguing with two soldiers at the market before the commotion happened.

According to Daily Trust, the young men later broke into groups of three, attacking their targets fiercely. A man seen in mufti was also attacked by the mob, but it is unclear if he is also a soldier.

A trader in the market told the newspaper that the soldiers were attacked after a disagreement with some persons in the market.

I am not currently in the market but I called my boys at the shop and they told me there was a disagreement between some boy and soldiers,” he said.

In another video, traders were seen locking up their shops to apparently prevent being affected by a reprisal.

The military authorities have not commented on the incident at the time of filing this report.

However, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has yet to respond to the incident as of the time of filing this report.
