Three killed in renewed clash between two Delta communities over alleged imposition of N5, 000 fees on market traders

At least three persons have been killed in a renewed clash between Iwhreko and Ekiugbo communities, in Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State over alleged imposition of N5, 000 fees on traders at Ughelli Main Market. 

 

It was gathered that the two communities have been fighting over the ownership of the land on which the market is located for over seven years.

 

However, the latest clash started at about 3 pm on Thursday, April 29, when youths from the Otor-vwreko informed they will henceforth collect fee of N5, 000 from those trading along the walkway.

 

A source who pleaded anonymity told The Nation that the neighbouring Ekiugbo community challenged the announcement.

“While the argument between the two communities heightened, from nowhere, we started hearing gunshots ranging in the air and the whole market was in total disarray as many traders left their stores and goods scampering for safety,” the source said. 

 

“Not quite a few minutes later, information filtered out that about three persons from Otor-vwreko including the son of the oldest man were killed during the clash between the two communities.”

 

Another source said two of the deceased died on the spot while a woman that was shot in the front of her store died at the hospital where she was rushed for medical attention. He named the deceased as John Mark, Odibo and a yet-to-be identified person.

 

Acting spokesperson of the State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, who confirmed the incident, said it had to do with issues over who would sell tickets in the market.

During preliminary investigation, it was gathered that the London based suspect was at different times between 2004 and 2014 the vice chairman of Lagos Island East LCDA. He had also contested and lost elections for House of Representatives in 2007 and Lagos State House of Assembly in 2015.

 

Although, he claims to be an international businessman who deals in automobiles, investigation is yet to confirm that to be the source of his acquired wealth.

 

In the course of tracking him, the sum of N131million was seized from his account and another N14 million also blocked in the account of one of his traffickers, Azeez Adeniyi Ibrahim, bringing the total sum so far recovered from him to N145 million.

 

While commending the officers and men of the MMIA Command of the Agency for resilience and dedication to duty, Chairman of NDLEA, Brig. General Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) said with the support of all stakeholders, the problem of drug trafficking and abuse in Nigeria will be drastically reduced very soon.

 

“This arrest is yet another message and red alert to those still in this criminal trade whether as barons or traffickers that they will soon enter the dragnet of the Agency, daily being spread across the country, if they fail to back out especially now that we are moving all out for the barons and the big cartels while we continue to reign in the traffickers, Gen. Marwa stated.

The statement read.“The unanimous decision of the southern region governors in banning the open grazing by Fulani herdsmen and insistence on national dialogue have suddenly aroused and stirred up the frustrated anger and insensitivity of the northern leaders and their clueless president Muhamadu Buhari through Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) which opposed the position of the southern region governors Forum in banning open grazing.

“The Hausa Fulani people are fearful cowards, they only depend on the indigenous people of the Middle Belt region to carry out their political, subjective domination, religious and economical wars against the southern region.

“MASSOB advises that the indigenous people of the Middle Belt region unanimously oppose every external pressure of the Fulani oligarchy to subject them as political tools of waging war against the southern region.

“The indigenous people of the Middle Belt region must join the southern region in their quest for political emancipation from the subjective domination of Fulani oligarchy,”
