Residents have allegedly taken to the streets to call for a new Divisional Police State officer after the attack on Wednesday night, October 22.
It is alleged that armed men went from house to house attacking families. On Nigerian social media it is alleged that the attacks were because an hausa man was killed while in a fight when some indigenes and hausa traders clashed.
Some of the residents claimed that the attacks were not in all parts of Oyigbo but the army was deployed to quell the attacks by shooting in the air.
On Thursday, October 23, bodies of victims were spotted on the road and this has sparked anger from some youths who have taken to the streets to demand for a new DPO.
