The Aladja and Ogbe-Ijoh land tussle had been on for some years now claiming lives and property from the neighbours Urhobos in Aladja community and Ijaws in Ogbe-Ijoh community.

The Delta state government’s had come up with an initiative to demarcate boundaries between communities with the hope that it may put an end to the lingering crisis.
