‘We encouraged you all, particularly, members of Iyowa community Landlords Residents Association to remain calm and give us time to look into the matter for a peaceful resolution’, Ezeajughi appealed.

The leader of the protesters, Dr. Tony Chukwunoso Princewil, who spoke to Journalists shortly after the exercise, informed the government that those behind the attack are still woving around the streets of their houses for further destruction.

He said a total of 10 storey buildings and 30 vehicles were burnt down by the hoodlums alleged to have been led by the President General of Odekpe community, Barrister Innocent Nwanosike, on 7th November 2023 at about 7am.

He added that the hoodlums also inflicted bodily injuries to residents during the attack.

He said they are in front the State government house to draw governor attention for immediate action.

According to him, Iyowa is a lay-out owned by Odekpe Community and residents in the lay-out are all strangers; Igbos, Yorubas, Hausas and other ethicities.
