There was a communal clash between Boku and Doko communities in Lavun local government of Niger State leading to the loss of three lives and others badly wounded.
DAILY POST gathered that the fight which broke out on Thursday through to Friday last week may not be unconnected with the over 50 years land dispute between the two warring villages.
Reports said during the attack launched by the Doko community on the neighbouring Buko, two people died on the spot and the third person died while being transported to the Federal Medical Center, Bida for treatment.
A property belonging to Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria RIFAN located in the village was also burnt to ashes during the clash.
Eyewitnesses said several houses and vehicles belonging to Boku people who are less populated than Doko were set ablaze, many livestock and monies were looted and the villagers currently taking refuge in neighbouring communities.
