Fourteen journalists have escaped death by whiskers while four persons including a policeman sustained various degrees of injury when the Ezinano Community in Awka clashed with policemen in a land dispute between it and the Enugu Agidi town in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State. It all started on Saturday morning when hundreds of elders, leaders, women and youths of Ezinano Community in Awka South Local Government Area stormed the disputed land but armed policemen stationed within the land started shooting guns and teargas in an ensuing pandemonium. The journalists drawn from various media houses were caught in the crossfire between the policemen and the aggrieved people of the Ezinano Community even as some of them (journalists) escaped death by whiskers but Providence smiled at them. Among the journalists at the scene of the crisis were Correspondents of The Sun Newspapers, ThisNigeria, New Telegraph, ThisDay, The Nation, The Razor, Vanguard Newspaper, two staff of Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), Fidel Newspaper, National Star and Leadership Newspaper, all in Awka the state capital.
