THERE was tension in Abba Community axis of Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, Friday as Police officers from state police command

The Nation gathered that the action may not be unconnected to the recent misunderstanding between the community and their neighbours, Ukpo, in Dunukofia Local Government, over land tussle.

Abba women who were yesterday denied entry into the market relocated to a junction in their community, where they settled to sell their wares. “As I speak with you, Oye Ukpo Market is in session, but he sent security men to come and chase us from our own market.“At my age, I was even among the 14 people who were arrested by police on the order of this man, and we spent several days in prison. We are calling on Governor Obiano to please come to our aid.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Haruna Mohammed, said there was no such incident as tear gassing of women, neither was there any case of complicity by the Police.
