Bem Jabez, who is from one of the villages took to Facebook to lament over the incident,
“My people have gone mad.
Mbamar Vs Ugambe, in Konshisha, men from same council ward, fighting this dirty over a very little piece of land.
These same fools can’t go to the bush to fight fulani o.
My village was burnt down few days ago in these fight.
What manner of brothers i have, I’m proud to have come from Konshisha but I’m no longer proud of my immediate community.”
