It was more like a tale of woe as seven members of Ndiagu Orie, Umuguduakpu Ngbo community in Ebonyi State were killed during an inter-communal clash with the neighbouring Agila community in Ado local government area of Benue State.
A witness cited how it all happened, saying;
“the attack was the climax of the boundary dispute between the two communities. The attackers from the Agila community stormed Ngbo at about 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, dressed in military uniforms and raided the community. While the unsuspecting residents took them to be military men who had earlier visited the area following the abduction of a Navy officer, the attackers unleashed mayhem on the Ebonyi community and killed seven villagers”
