There have been attacks on Gbalu, an Anuful community in the Chereponi district of the North East Region.
This comes despite reports that calm has returned to the district that has been plagued by violence for the last three days.
[contextly_sidebar id=”EZQMvTjAUnSBJzEkgEE1tSFTGimXcP6s”]The community was reportedly attacked a little after 6 pm on Monday.
The violence over the last few days has led to the deaths of two persons and the displacement of many others.
Five persons have so far been picked up by the security personnel in connection with the unrest and are currently helping with investigations.
The violence started on Friday evening when unknown assailants opened fire on Nawieku, a Chokosi community in the district, injuring one person.
The following day, 75 military personnel and 40 police officers were deployed to the area following reported reprisal attacks.
The Chereponi Police Commander, Henry Amankwatia earlier told Citi News that the police were receiving calls about plans by some persons to attack more communities.
He also complained that he did not have enough security personnel available to deal with the situation
“Right now, it is quiet. We don’t know what is going to happen in an hour or two… men are already on the ground but it’s like it is not enough.”
“The police need more drivers. Those who will be going for the night patrol cannot also be going for the day patrols so the drivers that we have, we need about two drivers per car,” he said.
