Two feared killed in another clash in Ibadan

Two persons were, on Thursday, feared killed in a clash among the youth of Inalende, Abebi and Oopo areas of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the clash had started since Wednesday when a group of youth from Inalende were said to have killed two people in Oopo, allegedly with the support of their counterparts from Abebi.

The incident came barely 24 hours after people were reportedly killed during a clash between phone dealers at Iwo Road and transport workers.

NAN also reports that Oopo, Abebi and Inalende are neighbouring areas in the heart of Ibadan, the state capital.

A witness, who requested not to be named, told NAN that clashes among the youth in the affected areas had become rampant recently.

The witness said that the youth in the area were still threatening to retaliate the killing of their members, notwithstanding the heavy presence of security agencies.

He said: “I am confirming it. I am a newspaper vendor in this area but I don’t want you to mention my name.

“The two boys are already down (killed) as I speak with you.

“Although the police and NSCDC personnel were here to maintain peace, those guys were still threatening to retaliate the killing of their two members
