A community leader who craved anonymity said, the ugly incident which happened at Ishieke junction had led to the destruction of property worth millions of Naira.

He said, “as I speak to you now, many more houses may be burnt tonight. We’re now at the mercy of angry soldiers.

“Hundreds of our people may pass this night in the bush. Our people have escaped from their land while those still remaining now live in fear,” he said
