Resident of Oruku Community Send message To Gov. Ugwuanyi As Many Families Strike out

Families go Homeless as cries strike the Community of Oruku in Nkanu East Local Government.

The residents of Oruku community
 have sent a distress message to Governor Ifeaanyi Ugwuanyi in Enugu states to following an alleged move to demolish over 100 residential houses as part of the settlement terms in an age-long dispute with their Umuode neighbours.

DAILY POST reported that the conflict, which had lasted for several years, was recently said to have been resolved following a peace process initiated by Governor Ugwuanyi.

However, it appears the last is yet to be heard as the people of Oruku have now cried out, lamenting that it was now facing extinction.

In a letter written to the governor on their behalf by their lawyer, J. O. Nwatu, titled, “Oruku Community: Where do we go from here?”, they painted a sad picture of the injustice they were presently facing in the area.

They noted that despite a court order halting the implementation of the Government’s white paper on the Report of the Committee on Enumeration and delineation of Houses and buildings between Oruku and Umuode communities, their neighbours, in connivance with security operatives and some government officials, were set to bring down their homes in the name of boundary delineation.
