Abuja - Two people are feared dead, while approximately 3 000 have fled their homes following a land dispute that turned bloody in the Otukpo LGA of Benue State over the weekend.

According to a Vanguard report, the crisis between inhabitants of Ondo-Ugboju village and the Ogobia community has been prolonged, with Ondo-Ugboju inhabitants consistently laying claims to Ogobia property and regarding residents in the area as visitors.

Moses Yamu, PR Officer for the Benue State Police, confirmed the development, saying that the matter is being investigated and arrests will be made.
