At least 24 people have been killed in ethnic violence in a rural town in Nigeria, according to a health official.
The attack happened on Friday in Wukari, a town in Nigeria’s Taraba state.
A state health official said on Saturday that others were also injured in the violence that sparked during a funeral service that pitted the Jukun people against the Hausa Fulani.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to publicly release death tolls.
Officials later placed the town on a 24-hour curfew, forcing everyone indoors.
A similar round of violence in February in the town killed more than 20 people.
Nigeria, home to more than 160 million people, has more than 250 different ethnicities.
Violence can start over politics, business, grazing rights, religion and other issues.
