“When we arrived at the location, we noticed that someone had died, and when we inquired as to what had happened, we were told that the Mai Shayi had murdered him for refusing to pay N50 for a cup of tea.” We quickly contacted the Warewa Police Station, but when two officers arrived, the Hausa people fought them.

“Musa went to get a cup of tea, but he only had N40 instead of N50,” he explained. This enraged the seller, and the two began fighting. Musa was punched in the chest by a tea seller who isn’t well known under the bridge here, though some say his name is Hamidu. He collapsed and died. Some of our members stepped in to help. The tea seller was arrested by the police.”
