DELTA: Two persons have been reportedly killed while many others sustained injuries in a renewed clash between Ogbe-Ijoh community of Warri South West Council Area and Aladja Community of Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was gathered that there was sporadic shooting all through Saturday morning and it later turned bloody in Aladja community.
Sources said, “the government inability to demarcate the disputed boundary involving both communities has been the reason for this age-long crisis.
“Several persons were shot resulting in the death of a 40 year old Efe America at Aladja and a 29 year old female wedding guest at Ogbe-Ijoh.
“One Major Solomon Nwakwuda and his soldiers shot two of the four other victims who are in the hospital receiving treatments which included a popular Udje dancer and Mr Robinson Onokahweri, an Olomu indigene.
“Gunmen from Ogbe-Ijoh attacked us at about 11 in the morning on Saturday.
“A leader from Ogbe-Ijoh says Aladja started the shooting.
“In the morning when we were going about our normal daily businesses, we heard gun attack from Ighwre, the road leading to Okotomu otherwise called Ogbe-Ijoh.
