At least one person has been killed with over ten others injured after a communal clash ensued between Abaomege and Isinkwo communities in Ebonyi State.

Reports gathered that three victims were also abducted during the clash by unknown hoodlums.

Ebonyi State governor, Chief David Umahi, had earlier visited the warring communities and ordered them to seize fire, while assuring them that the state government will do all it could to ensure that peace returns.

Just last week, the governor had ordered the Nigeria Army, Police and other security agencies to take over the two communities; Abaomege – Isinkwo to avert further killings and destruction of lives and property.

He also ordered the State Ministry of Lands to take over the disputed land.

But, the crisis allegedly persisted as one person was freshly killed while three others were abducted at the said warring communities.
