Odepke, Onugwa and Allah are three autonomous commmunities that has lived together, intermarried for more than a century. Although Onugwa and Allah has been experiencing this crises as regard to the boundary adjustment for more than three decades now.
The matter was taken to the court and the judgment was ruled in favour of Onugwa/Allah Autonomous Communities uptil court of Appeal. Sometimes last year of thereabouts, men from Odekpe Community went into the resolved boundaries and removed the beacon used for the boundary adjustment. This singular acts promoted the people of Onugwa/Allah Autonomous Communities to head back to court in order to seek for redress again. That’s after the internal settlement by Chiefs from others neighboring communities failed to resolving the matter.
On Monday April 20th the matter took a different dimensions as the warlords, thugs from Odekpe Community invaded Onugwa and Allah communities with mercenaries with all kinds weapons of war and destroyed properties worth millions of naira and many lives were lost during the invasion which lasted for hours. That was after previous attacks by the Odekpe community was rebuffed.
According to the eye-witness who’s also from the affected communities, some policemen had already lost their lives, some have been killed while some have been kidnapped, all because of the communal crises that’s currently ravaging the communities. As we speak the Onugwa and Allah communities are refugees in others communities because they cannot go back to their ancestral home.
The eye-witness further stated that, “On the 27th day of August one Mr Tony Uzor from Allah/ Onugwa was abducted from Edo state where he was taking refuge and was gruesomely murdered. The Odekpes are on all water ways scouting for the people of Allah/ Onugwa to kill. The worst part of it is that other relevant government agencies who needed to wade into this matter are treating it with kid gloves”.
“We plead for Government and other security agencies to come to our aid and resolve the crises so that we can go back to our ancestral home.”
