In Ubulu-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State, local vigilantes and some individuals allegedly acting as herders engaged in combat, according to reports.
Residents of the neighborhood who came out to protest the killings claimed eight people perished in the attack on Monday, despite the Delta State Police Command reporting only two fatalities.
Along the road between Ubulu and Uku, Issele and Uku, the incident took place.
Although the incident is still being investigated, the State’s Commissioner of Police, Wale Abass, warned citizens against enforcing their own laws.
“I think we had about two casualties so far,” he said.
Meanwhile, the police command has also given an update on the case of the two-year-old boy who was shot dead allegedly by an officer of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) during an operation by officials of the agency in Okpanam, near Asaba, the state capital some months ago.
