I comr. Onajite Idise, an indigene of Owevwe community attest to the above that it is 100% true in regards to the sub-communities territorial forceful takeover by the aforementioned persons, thereby generating steady unnecessary communal crises on every occasion when a new government is to emerge cause the people have noticed it and are fully against it.
I want the CP with all due respect to use his good offices to put an end to this barbaric practices by those person’s once and for all to help mitigate or reduce crises in our communities to a minimum.
