Those killed are, Kuang Zhang, a Chinese expatriate and one Hausa miner, Abdulhadi Musa. 

Also, one Chinese expatriate was beaten to coma during the fracas while another Hausa man reportedly sustained bullet wound.

But, the Hausa miners refused to leave the site, claiming they had been on the site for long time. 

The argument however led to fracas where two were killed and two injured.  

It was gathered that the injured victims have been receiving treatment at the Wesley Guild Hospital, Ilesa, while the two corpses were also deposited at the same hospital. 

Sources revealed that security operatives have been deployed to the site. 
The Police Public Relations Officer, Osun State Command, SP Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the incident.
