Just In: Heavy gunshots in Delta community over boundary dispute

There was palpable tension in Aladja community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, on Friday morning.

Residents of the area raised the alarm that the people of Ogbe-Ijoh community in Warri South-West Local Government were allegedly shooting sporadically at their (Aladja) community.

This development 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 who raised the alarm and notified newsmen on the latest development noted that no life has been lost, adding that no one has been injured.

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.”

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

THE DAILY VENDOR recalls that the members of the Ogbe-Ijoh Warri Kingdom Interest Defensive Forum had earlier alleged unlawful destruction of their buildings in the process of marking out boundary demarcation lines.
