Violence has also erupted in four other areas in the Local Government.
This is unconnected with the planned 2 day visit of Governor Rotimi Amaechi to Obio-Akpor.
Obio-Akpor is the stronghold of the Minister of state for Education, Nyesom Wike.
Youths dressed in black and red numbering in their hundreds had early Wednesday morning gathered at the palace of a Chief, Eze Anthony Owabie.
Violence erupted at the Wimpey area of Rumepirikom when some rival youth in the area stormed the Palace of the Chief, lead to a free for all.
The crisis has since extended to other parts of the Local government, including Rumiuigbo, Wike and Rumupkakulusi.
