The state police command, however, put the number of people who lost their lives in the clash at two, Leadership Ng reports.

The clash, it was learnt, was as a result of power tussle between the overseer of the Lafia East Development Area, Barrister Mohammed Haruna and the Oron Akye of Ugah, Alhaji Abdullahi Ugah.


The duo, it was gathered, appointed different ward heads to oversee Alingani and the resources therein, including the fish pond at the centre of the crisis which they laid claim to different portions.

He said the ward head also reported the matter to the DPO and the Nigerian Air Force 22 Quick Response Wing, stationed in Assakio, the headquarters of the development area.

He noted that the security agencies responded swiftly by allegedly warning the Oron Akye group not to have anything to do with the pond.

“After the military and police left, they went back to the pond and fished in a particular portion reserved in the custody of the ward head, Omiya, so when report got to the authority of the development area, they were summoned for a peace meeting, but the Oron Akye group allegedly refused to attend.

“On Tuesday, the ward head, Omiya, sent some persons loyal to him to go on fishing at the pond, then suddenly the rival group came and attacked them, unfortunately, two persons died in the bloody clash. Today (Wednesday) morning, another person died as a result of the injury he sustained in the attack,” he said.
