Yet another conflict beteen Ohankwu and Amana communities of Ikwo and Ezza south LGA was averted recently.

Nevertheless, the Ezza-Ezilo war in Ebonyi killed hundreds of people. This made international headlines during the reign of Ex President Goodluck Ebelemi Jonathan.

The government should look properly into these conflicts and identify the source of a threat and danger. This will enable the government to give a lasting solution to end these needless and endless loss of lives and properties in Ebonyi State.
