At least, one house, four vehicles and two motorcycles were burnt to ashes on Friday as two neighbouring communities in Anambra engaged each other in hostilities.

Both communities, Aguleri and Umuleri; said to be related had between 1999 and 2001 been involved in a fierce war, which led then president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to intervene, to no avail.

The communities are involved in a contest, over a large expanse of land in between them.

It was learnt that hostilities started again on Friday, leading to the burning down of a house, four vehicles and two motorcycles by rampaging youths of both communities. Governor Willie Obiano hails from Aguleri.
