A major inter-tribal war seems to be brewing in Ogun State following a bloody clash between Egun and Yoruba tribes following a dispute over land.
The clash which started yesterday at Alapoti village in Ado-Odo/Ota local government area of Ogun State, resulted in the loss of properties and alleged disappearance of about nine people since the beginning of the crisis.
The bloody clash, which had begun few years ago, was renewed yesterday at 2pm in Alapoti village following the alleged disappearance of two people of Yoruba extraction after they went to a farm in Idoleyin village, to fetch firewood.
There was apprehension in the area as people scampered for safety when some armed people invaded Alapoti village and allegedly attacked the people in revenge.
Giving the graphic details of the bloody clash, the Chairman of Community Development Councils in Ogun State, who is one of the elders in the area, Isaiah Akinsowon, told LEADERSHIP on phone that no fewer than nine people had got missing since the beginning of the crisis and that, just recently, two people, including one Segun Oyewole, had been declared missing.
