The late One whom they said was a member of Mafia Confraternity until his death had had an issue with one of the leaders of the Aye Confraternity following a relationship late Oke was into with the leader’s elder sister.

It would be recalled that members of the Aye confraternity have been in a running battle with the Aro baggers confraternity about 3 weeks ago and this incident may further cause crisis between the Aye and Mafia confraternities.

Security personnel have been drafted to the area and every part of Ughelli to calm the tension and fear of possible reprisal in the community since weekends till date.
