On Tuesday, the Delta State Government reaffirmed its dedication to resolving an ongoing land dispute within the Ogbe-Iyase quarters of Akwukwu-Igbo community, situated in the headquarters of Oshimili North Local Government Area. Chief Sunday Onoriode, the State Director of Protocols, delivered this commitment while addressing community members during a peaceful counter-protest at the Government House.

The purpose of this counter-protest was to refute allegations of land encroachment against Chief Fred Ajudua.

Mr. Onoriode praised the demonstrators for their peaceful behavior and encouraged them to remain calm and law-abiding. He assured them that the State Government would exert every effort to find a lasting resolution to the dispute.

The Oligbo family protesters, under the leadership of Uyo Iyase Chief Paul Nwaebili, Uko Oligbo, Hyacinth Iwelu, and Onwuenwuzor Anthony, acted upon the directives of Diokpa Iyase Emmanuel Sonwu. They embarked on this peaceful counter-protest to rectify the misimpression created by certain dissenting family members. They urged the state government to disregard the earlier protesters and clarified that Chief Fred Ajudua had not been granted a power of attorney to represent them.

“Let me appreciate you on behalf of our Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori for the peaceful conduct you have displayed today.

“Yesterday we received a group from your community in this same place saying that some strangers are entering their land unlawfully.

“We pleaded with them just like we are pleading with you now that our Governor is a man of peace and he loves peace so much.

“He has asked me to tell you all to continue living peacefully and harmoniously without problems. After yesterday’s protest the issue was referred to the appropriate department that handles conflicts and now that you are here we now know the two groups involved in this matter.

“The committee will invite stakeholders from both groups when they want to address your matter but above all you must remain peaceful and law-abiding,” Onoriode added.

Displaying placards with various messages such as “Fred Ajudua is a champion of the underprivileged, he is here to empower the poor and voiceless,” “Dismiss the unfounded allegations and smear campaigns by the dissidents, driven by greed,” “Okotomi Farm settlement remains communal land forever, even as confirmed by the court,” and “The Oligbo Family has officially authorized Chief Fred Ajudua to engage with Okotomi,” the group called on the State Government to intervene and collaborate with them for the betterment and advancement of the community.
