Many dead, more missing in Ebonyi, Benue boundary clash.

The people of Ojiogu and Okpochiri Ukwagba Ngbo in the Ohaukwsu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State were in fear and agony as a result of an alleged attack launched against them by their neighbours within the boundary area of Benue and Ebonyi States that left many dead, others injured, and some people missing. A pregnant woman and a vigilante were killed after gunmen broke into a bar in Akwuke, Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State, and opened fire.

An eyewitness who requested anonymity claimed that the warlords from Benue and the Ezza who lived in the border regions were the persons that attacked Ngbo people in Ebonyi. “Both sides of the border are vying for land, particularly for farming, which has led to this conflict. Several people were missing, numerous others were hurt, and many others are now homeless. Aside from the fatalities, it was confirmed that properties worth millions of naira were destroyed as a result of the heinous occurrence in Ebonyi.

Three night travellers die in Ogun road crash.

On Wednesday, an accident along the Lagos-Ibadan highway claimed the lives of three people who were travelling at night. The car accident happened at Mile 12 Market, near the Ogere axis in Ogun State, at around 3:15 am.

Three vehicles were involved: a Micra car with the license plate BDJ257XF, a truck with the license plate T4916LA, and another truck without a license plate. It was discovered that the crash included seven people, one of them was a woman. While three of the six males died, the remaining passengers, including the female adult, were unharmed.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) acknowledged the event, stating that one of the trucks was to blame. According to Florence Okpe, a spokesperson for the Ogun FRSC, “the suspected causes of the multiple crashes were excessive speed and dangerous driving on the part of one of the truck drivers, who was trying to negotiate a turning point when the other truck coming from Ibadan with high speed rammed into the vehicle.”
