BREAKING Heavy gunfire in Delta community over boundary dispute. On Friday morning, residents of the Aladja community in Delta State’s Udu Local Government Area reported hearing intermittent gunfire coming from the nearby Ogbe-Ijoh community in Warri South-West Local Government.
This occurred when the seven-day deadline they gave the State Boundary delineation committee to rebuild structures reportedly demolished in the region came to a close, according to DAILY POST.
Comrade Ighotegwolor Bezi, a native of the Aladja village, alerted our correspondent in Warri over the phone.
No one has been hurt or killed just now, but the environment is tense, the man stated.
Before things get out of hand, we are requesting assistance from the appropriate security authorities, especially the Delta State Government, for the residents of the Aladja village.
However, he issued a warning that the Aladja people would not disarm and let the assailants go unpunished.
It will be noted that the members of the Ogbe-Ijoh Warri Kingdom Interest Defensive Forum claimed that the procedure of drawing border demarcation lines had resulted in the illegal demolition of their structures.
