By Ozioruva Aliu, BENIN CITY
Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has declared a no-go-area to the disputed boundary area clash between Sabongida-Ora and Uhunmora communities in the Owan West local government area which has led to the killing of not less than four persons. Obaseki prohibited access to all parties involved in the land dispute.
He made the declaration while on a fact-finding mission in Sabongida-Ora in the company of security chiefs where he reassured that the government would do everything to ensure that the communal clash is brought to an end.
Obaseki noted, “All the land affected must be vacated immediately. I don’t want to see anybody on the land affected by this crisis. Farming or any other activity must not go on in that land as all activities must be suspended until a decision is reached on the matter. Commissioner of Police, please make sure your men enforce this order.
