Uneasy calm appears to engulf Umunze Community and environs in Orumba South Local Government Area, where an alleged face off
between the SARS and some youths of the community ended in arrests, detention and destruction of vehicle and a brothel in the area.
Sources from Umunze and neighbouring Ifite Communities, speak of fears, sorrows and wailings as women and the elderly alleged that most of their innocent sons and daughters were picked up from their homes to unknown destinations.
Another eye witness account alleged that a new youth group suddenly emerged in Umunze, threatening to deal with any one that dares to stop them from having their ways.
According to him, as the youths were expressing their grievances and making demands in a protest, they allegedly clashed with SARS which had come into Umunze to effect arrest in a totally different matter.
The traditional ruler of Umunze, Igwe Promise Eze, who confirmed the incident said they were on top of the situation now.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Nkiruka Nwode, when contacted, admitted that SARS was in Umunze to make arrest on a totally different issue but denied knowledge of any fracas.
