Breaking: Ugborodo crisis escalates as Police take over Arunton

Feelers reaching Fresh Angle International say the crisis rocking Ugborodo Community in Warri South -West Local Government Area, Delta State may have taken a new dimension as indication has emerged that Police have invaded Arunton, one of the main communities in the area.

Though details were still sketchy as at the time of this report, speculations say two persons may have died in the alleged invasion by the Police.

The leadership crisis in the community got to a head recently when some indigenes of the community declared that Ugborodo is not part of Warri Kingdom and as such not under the over-lordship of the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli.

A position the respected Itsekiri Leaders of Thought openly condemned and called on the Delta State Government to enforce the law, insisting the Itsekiri Nation has only one monarch, which is the Olu of Warri.

Meanwhile, a very authoritative source in Warri Traditional Council (name withheld) told Fresh Angle International in a telephone chat this afternoon that the Police invasion was in search of alleged killers of Mayomi.

The alleged killers of Mayomi were said to be at large, even as it was alleged that some persons in the community (Ode-Ugborodo otherwise called Arunton) exchanged fire with the Police.

The source technically acknowledged that one person believed to be an Ilaje by tribe may have died during the course of the Police invasion cum cross fire with some of the indigenes.
