The message is contained in separate letters to Governor Sullivan Chime and the state police commissioner as well as the State Security Service, SSS, Director, by the town union executive committee led by Honorable Emma Omaba, a former lawmaker.

Accusing the Oruku community of launching relentless armed attacks against its people since September 4 “without challenge from four mobile police officers stationed in the area because they have not been instructed to repeal the ferocious attackers with force”, the town union executive committee stated that Umuode people lost seven houses since hostilities resumed between the towns.

It said that the victims include Maurice Edeh, an erstwhile Commissioner for Agriculture in Enugu State, whose new house “ was at the roofing level”. Home Page
