There is currently palpable fear and tension in Oju LGA of Benue State following the murder of a farmer simply identified as  Ajah Esim on Monday.

The luciferous incident had since sparked war between the Ufia and Igede people as the two communities are said to be warring at the moment. 
It was gathered that school children fled their schools and markets dismissed early to avert any mayhem that could be unleashed on innocent people. 

A resident who spoke with IDOMA VOICE on phone said villagers have deserted their homes since the news broke out, Monday morning.

"As we speak, I am under a tree in a bush right now. There's tension in the town as Ufia and Igede people have been fighting dirty over development. 

"We call on security agencies to come to our aid," the resident said Monday night. 

Meanwhile, citizens have been  people that traveling to the warring communities should get security clearance before embarking on their journey.
