Ndiagu Owo community in Nkanu-East Local Government Area of Enugu State has petitioned Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi over the alleged plot to forcefully take over their ancestral land.

To this end, the leaders of the Ndiagu Owo  community have appealed to the governor to wade into the land dispute with a view to averting violence in the community.

In a petition dated July 23, this year, signed by the President of the community Town Union, Michael Mbah, its Secretary, Eze Tochukwu Henry and the Public Relations Officer, Ogbu Kingsley Chukwudi, stated that their land has been invaded with a view to forcefully annex it by Igwe Okeke Arum of Mbulu Owo autonomous community.

The petition reads in parts:

“We the good people of Ndiagu Owo in Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State hereby wish to alert the peace loving Governor of Enugu State, His Excellency Rt. Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the Government of Enugu State, and the general public of the invasion with a view to forcefully annex the ancestral land of Ndiagu Owo”

“The intending forceful annex of our land is by HRH Igwe Okeke Arum of Mbulu Owo Autonomous Community and his cronies from Ashishi Owo with the intent to cause violence and bloodshed thereby jeopardizing the hard earned peace we enjoy for over 300 years in Owo town in particular, and Enugu State in general. 

“We wish to state that there is no portion of land of Ndiagu Owo that is for sale.

“The public is further notified that the purported power of attorney being bandied by Igwe Okeke Arum in conjunction with some people from Ashishi Owo is fake and does not emanate from us the people of Ndiagu Owo.

“The general public is warned not to go into any form of land transaction with anyone in the name of Ndiagu Owo, especially trespassing beyond the Idodo River natural boundary between us and Mbulu Owo, as anyone who goes into such transaction does so at his or her own risk.

“We the people of Ndiagu Owo passionately appeal to His Excellency Rt Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Governor of Enugu State, to stop the plan to forcefully take over our ancestral land by Igwe Okeke Arum and his criminal gang from Ashishi Owo.
