Riot reportedly broke out in Katangan area of Warji Local Government Area of Bauchi State on Saturday as irate youths reportedly burnt houses and injured a pastor over another case of alleged blasphemy.

Details of the incident are still sketchy as the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, Ahmed Wakili could not take his calls and was unable to reply text messages forwarded to him.
