Tension as communal clashes rock border communities in Anambra


There was tension in the boundary communities of Ezi Nkewelle and Osile Ogbunike both in Oyi local government areas of Anambra state as suspected hoodlums block the road and smashed vehicles.

It was gathered that some hoodlums who were working for one of the communities while trying to stop the other party from taking possession of the slaughter market resisted them and blocked the road in protest which caused violence leading to the smash of the vehicles.

The Chairman of Ezi Nkwelle Community Wilfred Okafor flanked by other executive members and Counsel to the community Emeka Asiegbu while briefing newsmen on the recent development on the land matter accused police of complicity.

He alleged that when they approached the place on Feb 11 some armed policemen already stationed in the market started shooting sporadically which made them scamper for safety.
