Gov Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta on Tuesday expressed sadness over renewed hostilities between Igbide and Okpolo-Enwhe communities in Isoko South Local Government Area of the state.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Charles Aniagwu, Okowa condemned the killings and wanton destruction of properties worth millions of naira during the hostilities and warned that government would deal decisively with perpetrators of the violence.
Recall that six people were killed, scores wounded and several houses set ablaze during a mayhem over the weekend in a renewed clash between the two communities.
Also, hundreds of people fled the communities during the mayhem.
The attack came 11 months after the leadership of the feuding communities had signed an undertaking to end their 15-month crisis over land and maintain law and order in their domains.
