The Anambra state government, Saturday, imposed a three-day curfew on Aguleri, Umueri and Umuoba-Anam communities in the Anambra East local government area of the state following fresh conflict between members of the communities over a parcel of land.

The agelong fight between both communities erupted Saturday morning as cars and a house were burnt by the warring parties. 

A statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command, Mohammed Haruna, said the situation has been brought under control.

Haruna said no life was lost in the incident neither was anyone injured. He added that one building, four vehicles, and two motorcycles were set ablaze by the warring factions.

He said the state Commissioner of Police, CP John B.Abang,  has directed the State CID Awka to carry out a discreet investigation in order to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident and bring perpetrators to book.

To forestall further clash by the warring parties, the state government swiftly imposed a curfew on the three communities from 7pm to 7am daily, beginning on Saturday, 16th January 2021.  

The statement said that the curfew in the first instance will last for three days and that violators would be prosecuted. 

Governor Willie Obiano hailed from Aguleri.
