Four persons, three male youths and a girl of about 17 years old were killed at about 2:00am Monday  February 11 at No 10 Jakpa Road, Effurun in Uvwie Local Government Area in what appears to be escalation of the political tension in the local government between supporters of All Progressives Congress, APC and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.  

Three of the victims killed at 10 Jakpa Road, Effurun were shot dead in one house, while the Fourth person was reportedly killed in a nearby house.

A source claimed that the four persons killed are PDP supporters, even as it will be recalled that the crisis started about a week ago with the killing of a young man, who purportedly defected from PDP to APC.

In a swift reaction, Chairman of Uvwie Local Government Area, Hon. Ramson Onoyake stated that the killing has no political colourations as speculated, because "no politician has been killed".
