A communal clash among residents of Utagba-Ogbe community in Delta State has reportedly claimed the lives of a pregnant woman and three others.
Eyewitness said there have been cases of communal clashes in the last few months in the community over the ownership of farmlands, a situation that led to the alleged killing of innocent residents.
