One person has been reported dead with three others seriously wounded in Okuama community, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State.

This is coming after soldiers who had laid siege in the community for the past 51 days pulled out on Tuesday.

It was learnt that indigenes of Okuama in their attempt to return to their community were engulfed in a fresh crisis.

It was also gathered that residents who fled the community attacked those who were said to have strayed into the wasteland to loot what is left of the ruins.

Sources said there is serious tension in the area as neighbouring communities alleged that their indigenes were macheted, injured and hospitalised.

A source noted that there are fears that there could be a reprisal attack if urgent steps are not taken by the relevant security agencies and the Delta State Government to address the situation.
