The age-long land dispute between the two communities of Omor and Anaku in Ayamelum Local Government Area of Anambra State was on Sunday renewed.

Though the detail was still sketchy at the time of filing this report, it was gathered that Omor people allegedly invaded Anaku early Sunday morning and started burning down houses and maiming people.

A source said the house of a former Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs, Indigenous Artworks, Culture and Tourism, Christian Madubuko, was burnt down while four people were feared dead, with scores of injured.

When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, said: “The Commissioner of Police, CP Chris Owolabi, earlier this morning, of 16th May, 2021 has since led a combined team of police operatives and special forces to scene on a spot assessment.

“Normalcy has been restored in the area. The CP urges the good people of Anambra, especially those in the area, not to panic but work with the police and other security agencies in identifying the bad elements among them.”
