More than 8 people were said to have sustained various degrees of injuries from gun attack, and over 80 buildings were reportedly raided when some youth suspected to have come from Ogidi in Anambra State, stormed a disputed land between the community and Nkpor in Idemili North Local government of Anambra state. Both communities have had their differences on the ownership of the land for years now.


Majority of the destroyed buildings were said to have been erected by by non-indigenes who had bought some plots of land from Nkpor people.

Report says nobody was killed in the attack, however, tension is beginning to build up in the area as people are beginning to get scared of more attacks either on the Nkpor people or on the Ogidi people.
The armed youths invaded the site where constructions were ongoing, destroying different buildings and attacking workers who had to run for dear lives.

Information reaching DailyPost says the Ogidi Divisional Police Station had arrested four people in connection with the attack and are being questioned in order to get hold of the other attackers who escaped after being pursued by the police.

It was gathered that the case over the disputed land had been decided by the supreme court in favour of Nkpor people, yet the rival community had vowed not to give up.

President General of Ogidi Town Union, Dr. Eric Obiakor, when contacted said he was not aware of any attack, saying the issue had not been brought to the attention of the town union.

Counsel to Abor Akuror Umusiome village, Mr. Simon Chukwkelu, in a reaction to what he called inhumane attack had petitioned the State Commissioner of police, demanding that a proper investigation must be carried out in order to get hold of the perpetrators.
