Running mate to the PDP gubernatorial candidate in the state, Hon. John Ngbede, who hailed from Agatu confirmed that there was heavy clash in the area which led to the death of seven people, while several houses and farmlands were destroyed.Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Moses Yamu, an ASP said he was yet to be briefed on the matter.
Efforts to also speak with the Zonal Coordinator of the Miyetti Allah Cattle breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) Garus Gololo failed as several calls made to his GSM line was neither answered nor returned.
