Igwe Nwankwo said that the lawyer encroached into other lands outside the plots of land he got through a court judgment.

He said that the Land Use Act of 1978 entrusted the custody of all communal land on the traditional ruler of every community, contending that, “some people are trying to take over the communal land in a commando form, as if they own the communal land.”

According to him, the ploy by those who want to use outright fraud to take over communal land was the reason his traducers attempted to remove him as the traditional ruler of Nawfia.

He said that the forceful entry into communal land is agitating the youths of the area who he said have been cautioned to remain calm and not take laws into their hands.

Meanwhile an unidentified man was short dead in the early hours of yesterday at Akwulobia, Aguata council area in Anambra State, by gunmen.

The hoodlums were said to have invaded the town in two vehicles.

It was gathered that the victim, putting on Anambra State Road Traffic Management Agency(ATMA) uniform, was on duty near the Ekwulobia car park when he was gunned down.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Tochukwu Ikenga has confirmed the incident, saying the hoodlums shot sporadically in the area in attempt to disarm a mobile police officer on patrol.

“The Anambra State Police Command today 08/02/2022 embarked on a robust patrol around the state with the aim to apprehend suspected hoodlums sighted along Ekwulobia, Umunze road this morning.

“Preliminary information reveals along Umunze road that the hoodlums in attempt to disarm a mobile police officer on patrol, started shooting sporadically, the police returned the fire immediately, which made the gunmen flee the scene.”
