DAILY POST gathered that the fight has claimed no fewer than five lives.
An insider hinted our reporter on Monday that problem started few months ago when a man, who is believed to be a member of an armed robbery gang from Inleng, a neibouring village, was arrested and killed by vigilante group from Okpoga.It was gathered that his group, few days later traced one of the vigilante members to Okpoga and strangled him to death and burnt his body.
“The same suspected robbers again came to the community with motorcycle and the vigilante members identified them and followed them to a nearby village where fight broke out between them.
"The vigilante guys overpowered them after their bullets exhausted. They arrested them, cut off their manhoods and set them ablaze,” the source said.
It was gathered that total war broke out after the boys from Inleng returned to the community and killed two boys from the community in reprisal.
“They killed, dismembered their bodies and set them on fire,” the source added.
“As we speak, Okpoga, Okpodu, Aidogodo and other villages have teamed up and are currently matching to Inleng to fight.
“The entire Okpoga is like a graveyard as we speak. I am currently in Ai-Fam, in Owukpa as I am talking,” another community member who gave his name as Agbo said.
Efforts to reach the Benue State Police PPRO, Moses Yamu could not yield any fruit at the moment.
