According to reports, supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari who stormed the Unity Fountain area of Abuja on Saturday morning, have engaged in a serious fight over money sharing formula.

Eyewitnesses revealed that the group's leadership were seen engaging in a heated arguement on how the money which was paid by their employers would be shared, which eventually degenerated into a brawl.
