The PPRO said, “Normalcy has been restored in the area and our men are still on the ground to ensure the safety of life and property. So far, we have recovered three bodies that have been deposited at the morgue.

It was gathered that Anaku and Omor, have been having a protracted crisis over land.

A source said, “Some of the affected persons in the renewed crisis include a former Chief Judge of Anambra and a former commissioner.
