Political Vigilantism

At least eight people were killed following a communal conflict in Nigeria’s southern state of Ebonyi, local police has said.

The clash, on Friday, was sparked by a dispute over leadership of a local workers’ union in the state’s Ohaukwu area, said state police chief Aliyu Garba.

Houses and a petrol station were burnt during the conflict, the police chief told reporters in Abakaliki, the state capital, on Sunday. More than 60 suspects were arrested and will appear in court for prosecution, Garba said.
