Residents of Aladja community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, on Friday morning, raised the alarm that the people of Ogbe-Ijoh community in Warri South-West Local Government were allegedly shooting sporadically at their (Aladja) community.

It has been reported that it came as the 7-day ultimatum they handed to the State Boundary demarcation committee to replace buildings allegedly destroyed in the area came to an end.

An indigene of Aladja community, Comrade Ighotegwolor Bezi raised the alarm in a telephone conversation with our correspondent in Warri.

He said, “no one has been wounded or killed at the moment, but the area is tensed.
