Hundreds of armed youths set ablaze a building along Bello Way, where Igbo traders have shops.
Shops were vandalized and burned by the irate youth presumably acting in counter terror for tales and videos of pro-Biafrans attacking northerners in Nigeria’s East and South South.
President-General of Igbo Community in Sokoto State, Charles Uwaga, confirmed the attack.
Igbo cars were also burned in the attacks in the capital.
The police has been sent to restore order.
Nigeria is on a boiling kettle since president Muhammadu Buhari sent the Nigerian army to attack and arrest pro-Biafran separatist Nnamdi Kanu.
