# 10 feared dead
# Enumerators attack NPC chief
# Lapses in Lagos, others
LAGOS-ABOUT 10 people were reported dead in a fracas that broke out on the first day of the national headcount at Nnewi, Anambra State yesterday, with reports from other states indicating that crisis and confusion trailing the exercise.
In Kaduna State, for instance, the National Population Commission (NPC) Commissioner in charge of Kaduna State, Dr. Ufot Asibong-Ibe, narrowly escaped being lynched when irate enumerators attacked his convoy over non-payment of the N5,200 allowance due to them after their 13 days of training.
