Nigeria: One Killed, Three Injured As Youths Clash In Delta State


Breaking news- Following the alleged killing of one of the members of Aladja
community by some armed Ogbe-Ijoh and Isaba youths today morning at about 9:30am, uncontrollable tension has erupted
in Delta State as three other persons were injured in the ensuing gun battle among the youths.

According to DailyPost, parents have withdrawn their children from school as a result of the attacks while the Egweya (women group) blocked the entrance to Aladja community due to sporadic gun shots.

The cause of the latest attacks by the armed youths is connected with the land dispute between the two communities.
Former President of Aladja community council, Hon. Tabuko Kabedje who was spotted rushing one of the injured victims
to the hospital, confirmed the report to a Delta State correspondent, saying, "I cannot see or talk to you now, 
Ogbe-Ijoh and Isaba are attacking us.”

When contacted, the Delta State Acting Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka did not respond to
calls put across to his mobile phone as the shooting is still ongoing.
