Festival Turns Bloody, One Shot Dead, Many Injured In Delta Community

A community annual festival turned bloody in Ughelli Kingdom in Delta State with one person killed.

The violence which erupted during the festival left several other people with varying degrees of injuries.

It was gathered that the violence broke out in Ekiugbo and Oto-Iwhreko communities on Thursday evening, September 16, when some irate youths in the area reportedly resumed fresh hostilities.

The development was confirmed in a statement released by the spokesperson of the State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe.

According to him, it was one person that was killed and not two as being widely rumoured by residents.

The cause of the fracas that led to the violent shooting of rival communal youths is sketchy at the time of this report.
