The decapitated head of a middle-aged was, on Saturday, found at an intersection between Otor – Iwhreko and Ekiugbo communities in Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State.
This is just as another unidentified person was set ablaze by unknown persons at FCMB roundabout in Ughelli.
The killings are a fallout of the dispute between Otor – Iwhreko and Ekiugbo communities over who should collect levy at Ughelli Main Market in the local government area.
It will be recalled that both communities have been at loggerheads for decades over who controls and collects levies from traders in the market which has resulted in a killing spree.
It was gathered that the crisis resurfaced last Thursday when three persons – two men and a woman – were shot dead.
It was further gathered that authorities of the local government which should ordinarily be in charge of the collections has been unable to put the crisis under control.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Delta Police Command Bright Dafe, who earlier confirmed the Thursday killing could not immediately speak on Saturday’s killing.
