Two people have been confirmed dead following a bitter land disputed that deteriorated into a deadly fight between some residents along the Abim and Amuria Districts.
Five other people were seriously injured in the Tuesday fight which saw a number of victims flee their homes.
Authorities identified the deceased as Juvetino Eyelu and Samson Emodu. Some of the injured were identified as James Okello, Joyce Akello, Maritino Okede and Silver Emojong.
The attack has left the victims in fear forcing the Amuria District RDC Joseph Osoto to order deployment of UPDF officers.
Osoto also accused the Amuria Member of Parliament Michael Ayepa of fuelling the fight between.
According to him, Ayepa has been making inflammatory statements that escalated tension among residents on the disputed.
However, Ayepa denied his involvement in the dispute saying he’s been a champion of peace in the region.
