BREAKING: Heavy gunfire in Delta community over boundary dispute

Published:

Residents of Aladja community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, on Friday morning, raised the alarm that the people of Ogbe-Ijoh community in Warri South-West Local Government were allegedly shooting sporadically at their (Aladja) community.

DAILY POST reports that this came as the 7-day ultimatum they handed to the State Boundary demarcation committee to replace buildings allegedly destroyed in the area came to an end.

An indigene of Aladja community, Comrade Ighotegwolor Bezi raised the alarm in a telephone conversation with our correspondent in Warri.

He said, “no one has been wounded or killed at the moment, but the area is tensed.

“We are calling on the relevant security agencies, including the Delta State Government to come to the rescue of the people of Aladja community before the situation gets out of hand.”

He warned, however, that the Aladja people would not fold their arms and allow the attackers go free.

It would be recalled that the members of the Ogbe-Ijoh Warri Kingdom Interest Defensive Forum had alleged unlawful destruction of their buildings in the process of marking out boundary demarcation lines.
