Listen to article

Honourable Afam Victor Ogene who is the member representing Ogbaru federal constituency in the House of Representatives has called on the Governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Soludo to put more effort and end the communal conflict in Ogwuaniocha community which led to the abduction of a traditional ruler since 2021.

Ogene made the call in a widely shared video, bemoaning the way that the previous administration and the state government had handled the town’s situation with veiled contempt, despite the fact that the village generates a significant portion of the state’s present oil revenue.

He appealed to the state government to set up a panel of inquiry to address the conflict and bring an end to the years of lawlessness, fear, reprisal killings and criminality in the community, adding that since 2021, there had been no progressive socioeconomic activities in the community as a result of the crisis.
