But the Ooni of lfe through his spokesman, Moses Olafare debunked reports linking the killing to the long resolved dispute between the two communities.

In a statement which reads, "The palace of the Ooni on friday morning received with great concern news of the reported killing of persons numbering about five at Toro village,lle -lfe.

"Aside from condemning the unfortunate incident in strong terms,the palace of the Ooni immediately reported the case to the appropriate security authorities,who swung into action immediately .

"While some mischief makers tried to link the criminality to a long resolved lfe/Modakeke dispute,the palace of the Ooni of lfe wishes to state unequivocally that what happened at Toro village was sheer criminality and that the long hand of the law will soon catch up with the perpetrators.

"It is in public knowledge that the country like its counterparts across the world is being confronted by security challenges,which would soon be a thing of the past with the cooperation of all especially we (citizens).

"Attempts to add communal colouration to the crime with an attempt to distract security operatives from unveiling the evil minds behind the devilish act by some mischief makers is already known to security operatives,who are on top of the matter."
