In relation to the incident, a Facebook user, identified as Ruth Aaron Oviezibe, an indigene wrote on her timeline as follows:
“Bloodshedding ongoing in my community Opolo Epie under the watchdog of leaders.
Ordinarily, “I would have been mute or maintain some silence on this internal crisis lingering my community, But i deemed it fit to call on relevant security agencies, Meaningful traditional rulers of Epie kingdom, SPDC stakeholders before the situation spiral out of control….
Indeed, the existence of my community (Opolo Epie) Yenegoa Local Government Area under the watchdog of our political leaders, elders, women and youths…
Lives and properties are threatened by some hoodlums and land militants …
Its so pathetic and shameful to see my brothers (Indigenous youths of Opolo) killing themselves for peanuts … My people fail to realise that, peace is priceless and terror is
I write with great pain in my heart. And i condemn completely the show of disarray in my community Opolo Epie due to this puzzling circumstance
Opolo community unity is not negotiatetable
