It would be recalled that Delta state Governor, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa Okowa sign into law abolishing the collection of ‘Deve’ by any individual in the state.
According to a community source, trouble started when persons from Ogbonvwan accosted land developers to demand for ‘deve’ which has been abolished by the Delta State Government.
The source alleged that upon the intervention by Afiesere community to prevail on them to stop the illegal extortion, it resulted into fight between both communities and many were severally injured.
“They came with axe, cutlasses and dangerous weapons to attack us and as I speaking with you now, many people are in the various hospital receiving treatment. The source alleged.
