He said, “no one has been wounded or killed at the moment, but the area is tensed.

“We are calling on the relevant security agencies, including the Delta State Government to come to the rescue of the people of Aladja community before the situation gets out of hand.”

He warned, however, that the Aladja people would not fold their arms and allow the attackers go free.

It would be recalled that the members of the Ogbe-Ijoh Warri Kingdom Interest Defensive Forum had alleged unlawful destruction of their buildings in the process of marking out boundary demarcation lines.
