WARRI/Nigeria: Hell was let loose as legions of hoodlums invaded the residence of the president general of Ovwian Community in Udu Local Government Area, destroying wind and back screens of scores of parked vehicles in the area on Saturday, May 18, 2019.
The president general of Ovwian Community who was alleged to be the target of the invasion was said to have escaped the attack by a breath of air as his escape was a surprise to residents and even to the invaders as goods and properties worth millions of naira were allegedly destroyed in the attack.
The brother of president general of Ovwian Community was not so lucky as he was allegedly said to have been beaten to pulp by the hoodlums who inflicted several injuries on him resulting to his admission in an undisclosed medical centre as at the time of filling this report.
A source who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that the hoodlums were protesting the nefarious activities of street cultists in the area as they were said to have deposited the corpse of an Ovwian youth at the residence of the president general of Ovwian community during the invasion as it was alleged that the said youth was killed by street cultists from a neighbouring community.
Efforts by our correspondent to confirm the incident from the police proved abortive as he was referred to Delta State Police Headquarters, Asaba by a police officer at Ovwian /Aladja Police Divisional Headquarters for confirmation.
Similarly, efforts by our correspondent to reach the president general of Ovwian Community for comments also proved abortive as at the time of filling this report.
