Sources say properties worth millions of Naira were destroyed and made away with.
The head of the Local Government, Mr. Clement Odah blamed the Agila people for attacking and killing innocent people of his Council.
Awosola Awotinde, the Ebonyi State Police Commissioner confirmed the killings.
The dispute between the two neighbouring communities was based on a piece of land that has long been under dispute, with both sides claiming the land as theirs.
Clement also said, “We believe that demarcation of the disputed land will bring lasting peace to the area,” when quizzed by pressmen. He further said that, “We believe that demarcation of the disputed land will bring lasting peace to the area.”
The attack, a source said, was carried out at about 1:00pm on Tuesday. He said the attackers had entered the community dressed in military camouflage uniforms, and as a result, community members took them to be real Military officers. He added that military officials had been around over the course of last week while looking for a missing Naval officer.
