There is tension in Agudene village in Adamagu Akpawfu community in Nkanu East Local Government Area and Ndiagu-Akpugo community in Nkanu West council area of Enugu State as the soldiers reportedly stormed the area, arrested some youths and set a house on fire.
Everydaynewsngr quoted eye witnesses as saying that the incident started Wednesday evening and continued up to Thursday,
Attempt by reporters, according to the medium, to visit the community was not possible as all commercial motorcycle operators operating within the neighbouring communities refused to go to the troubled area.
According to village sources, the soldiers, who came in about eight Hilux Vans, were still parading the villages as of Thursday evening.
Initial reports had said the soldiers went after the people of the communities after they evicted Fulani herdsmen.
Business Hallmark has, however, gathered that the said soldiers went after some miscreants who stole submersible pumps and ran to the affected communities.
Note: This report has been updated to reflect the real reason for the soldiers ‘invasion’. It had nothing to do with herdsmen as earlier insinuated.
