THE battle between Anambra and Kogi states over oil wells at their boundary took another dimension yesterday when two people were beheaded at Eziagulu Otu near the embattled Orient Petroleum Resources Ltd in Anambra East Local Government Area. The suspected killers may.....
have come from Kogi State.
The hoodlums allegedly invaded the island community during the day as the people were in their farms working, they were attacked.
The attack came barely 24 hours after Orient Petroleum Board of Directors visited Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State and informed that the company had acquired two new wells in Aguleri and would increase its crude oil production to 3,000 barrels per day next month.
The attackers, allegedly took the farmers unawares and as many of them ran into the river. They invaders attacked six of them, killing two and wounding four, who are being treated at a private hospital in Onitsha.
At Press time, it was not clear if there were some people still missing.
