Dr. Usman, who is a former Secretary to the Kaduna State Government, is husband to former Minister of Finance in the Olusegun Obasanjo administration and Senator representing Kaduna South Senatorial District, Mrs. Nenadi Usman.

Although the number of casualties was not made available to journalists, the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Mr.Olufemi Adenaike confirmed to newsmen last night that there was pandemonium in the area but his men were on top of the situation.

Dr. Usman, a second class traditional ruler, was reportedly attacked went he to mediate over the dispute in his domain, while some of his palace guards also sustained injuries in their bid to shield him from the rampaging fighters.
