At least two people are feared dead and several others injured in a clash between some men suspected to be Hausa’s and some Christians in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Our correspondent gathered that some suspected Hausa men residing around Trailer Park within Eleme ambushed some Christians who were coming out from a programme organized by Assemblies of the Apostolic Church at F.O.T along Onne road. Several church properties were destroyed in the attack, leaving many wounded with various degrees of injuries from machete and knife cuts.
It has also been disclosed that unconfirmed number of children have been declared missing, as many mothers are yet to find their children. According to eye witness, the attackers promised to be back.
However, a senior Police officer within the area who confirmed the attack told our correspondent that some of those involved in the fracas have been arrested by the Police and they have commenced investigation into the matter.
