It has been revealed that soome villagers of the Izombe community in the Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State have deserted their homes.
They fled their homes over fears trailing the alleged killing of security personnel and a youth, according to SaharaReporters.
Reports show that the personnel on Friday confronted a youth allegedly engaged in oil bunkering in the village and killed him.
The situation reportedly forced the youths to descend on the security personnel and killed them too.
The situation became charged when the personnel in their numbers stormed the community for retaliation causing the burning of the palace of the traditional ruler of the community and other houses close to the Eze’s palace.
