The attackers, who took the farmers unawares, prompting them to ran into the surrounding rivers, injured four persons, aside the two killed. has received a distress mes­sages from one of the victim while the attack was on reading, “Information reach­ing our town indicates that Kogi people are right now attacking Eziagulu Otu and Enugu Otu in several groups and are about to overrun the area and the oil field facilities there.”
Another message from the president-general of Aguleri said, “Eziagulu Otu is presently under siege by our Kogi neigh­bours.
“I am informed that se­rious fighting is going on and ca[post_ad]
sualties have been recorded. We are at a dis­advantage under their superior fire-power. The situation is bad.”
Confirming the attack, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hosea Karma, said his men and the Kogi State Police Command have stepped in to stop further clashes.
