In the process,  one of the occupants set off a bomb which claimed the bomber's life and his college was apprehended. After interrogation,  a bomb factory was discovered in the community.
A statement issued by Edo State Government on Tuesday confirmed the discovery of the bomb-making facility in Okpella.
Governor Godwin Obaseki on Tuesday, said he was worried about the events in Okpella and has directed the police and the State Security Service, SSS, to search for explosives and other weapons in Okpella and also disarm local militia operating in the area.
“We cannot pretend that things are fine. We must move arms out of private hands in that community and ensure peace returns to that domain,” Obaseki was quoted as telling the traditional ruler of Okpella, Andrew Dirisu, who led other chiefs on a courtesy visit to the governor.
“Your Royal Highness, if not for the explosion that rocked the community where one person died, you would not have known that explosives of such nature were in private hands in your domain,” the governor said.
“In the last one year, Okpella has recorded the highest rate of incidents in Edo State. I cannot sit down without taking action.”
The governor gave the assurance that his administration would do its best to make the state secure and safe.
The traditional ruler was said to have appealed to the governor to find an alternative means of resolving the dispute between the Obu Cement Company and the Dangote Group, outside the court.

Benue State belongs to the Fulani by right of conquest - Prof. Labdo Muhammad

 Benue State belongs to the Fulani by right of conquest - Prof. Labdo Muhammad
Prof. Umar Labdo Muhammad of the Faculty of Humanities, Northwest University, Kano claims that Benue State belongs to the Fulani by right of conquest. Read below:
Benue State belongs to the Fulani people by right of conquest. This is because half of the state is part of the Bauchi Emirate and the other half is part of the Adamawa Emirate. Benue is therefore part and parcel of the Sokoto Caliphate. So no one has the right to expel the Fulani from Benue under any guise.
Second to the Arabs, perhaps the Fulani are the most benevolent and merciful conquerors in history. If they had applied the Nazi final solution to the natives, or if they had treated them the same way the European settlers treated Red Indians in North America or the Aborigines in Australia, the story would have been different today.
