There was pandemonium on Tuesday morning after suspected gunmen from
Uffiom attacked Omege People in Ebonyi State killing people in their dozen.

Our correspondent gathered that houses were equally burnt and five persons kidnapped from Omege village.

9NEWS NIGERIA gathered that the crisis ensued as a result of a misunderstanding between two factions of Effium branch of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) over which group to be in-charge of collecting revenue in the Effium motor park.

Residents of the area said over one thousand have been killed in the crisis, but Ebonyi state government claimed only eight persons have been killed.

9NEWS NIGERIA reports that the ugly incident is happening despite that the State government had freed the stakeholders of both clans who were earlier arrested and detained for days by the Police on the orders of Governor David Umahi, for allowing such crisis to erupt in the area.

The Governor who had vowed not to free the stakeholders until peace returned, made a u-turn last week, by releasing them with a charge to go to their area and ensure that absolute peace returned.

The Stakeholders, in compliance to the government directive, returned home to preach peace to their people, but fillers from the area indicate that their efforts yielded no result, as hostilities between the two clans have continued to persist.
