The President of Isoko Development Union Youth Wing, Comrade Ede Ewariezi Hyacinth has sued for peace among two warring Delta communities, Emede and Igbide and also condemned in totality the killings and destruction of properties in the place.
Comrade Ede made this known during a press briefing at the Isoko Development Union Secretariat Oleh, Isoko South local government area of Delta State.
According to him, “it was Okpolo-Enhwe and Igbide, two neighbouring communities who had been slugging it out. Now it is Emede and Igbide.
“These fights have gotten to a level where killings and destruction of lives and properties are recorded on daily basis. Most worrisome of the inter-communual hostilities is the case of Emede and Igbide.
“Just yesterday, we heard that armed men invaded Igbide community burning down several houses with several persons feared dead, others still missing, this is totally unacceptable.
He noted that, “The Prof. Chris Akpotu led administration of the Isoko Development Union came into office at a time of great turbulence in our annals of history. From the blast of the whistle we have been bombarded with tales of catastrophic hostility among sister communities.
