Four killed as Kogi community claims attack by Anambra community over oil wells. The governor of Kogi State says the crisis in oil bearing communities of Kogi and Anambra States must be stopped.
Governor Idris Wada of Kogi State on Tuesday in Lokoja, expressed concern over the deteriorating security situation in oil bearing communities in border areas between Kogi and Anambra states.
Mr. Wada also condemned the alleged killing of four people and abduction of two others in attacks on Odeke and Echeno communities in Ibaji Local Government Area of Kogi by unidentified persons.
He said the situation in the border communities require urgent attention of the affected states and the Federal Government; saying the situation must be brought under control immediately.(The Anambra people are protecting their assets for foreign invaders, I think kogi should keep off from those areas)
The two communities have been at loggerheads with communities in Anambra over the location of four oil wells now being exploited by Orient Oil.
The governor appealed to leaders of the two communities who came to his office to protest against the attacks to remain calm and promised to get in touch with his Anambra counterpart to find a lasting solution to the problem.
He also promised to ensure that the two men abducted by the attackers regained their freedom as soon as possible.
