A source said:

“What happened was that one of the boys of Dankarami carted away a flock of sheep belonging to one of Dangote’s siblings, Sale Lamo, and he was trailed by the Dangote gang who retrieved the sheep and killed the boy.
“By then Dankarami was at Rukudawa, he was told about the incident and thus he came after them. By the time he reached Dumburum area, he heard that they had mobilised to fight him, so he waylaid them and pounced on them, killing Dangote, Lamo na Balewa and Usman Yellow.
