Govt wades into Mkpunando, Omor-Igbakwu crisis



GOVERNOR Willie Obiano has constituted a panel of Inquiry to look into the problem  of communal crises facing the Mkpunando, Omor,  Igbakwu communities.

He said the inauguration was as a result of  government’s concern with the state of restiveness in Mkpunando, which if left unchecked, will lead to eventual breakdown of law and order and possible loss of lives.

Governor Obiano charged the committee  members to examine the remote and immediate causes of the state of affairs of the community which include allegations of sale of communal land by the traditional ruler and  misappropriation of funds.

The committee is expected  to submit the report within 10 sittings from the date of it’s inauguration to the state government.

The governor also revealed that the panel will come up with recommendation that will reconcile the various factions and restore lasting peace to the community.

In his remark,  chairman of the panel, Justice Vero Umeh said that she was optimistic that the panel would help in finding lasting peace in the communities.

Other Members of the panel are the traditional ruler of Mbaukwu, Igwe Peter Anugwu, his counterpart from Nteje, Igwe Rowland Odegbo, Igwe Sunday Okafor of Okpuno and Igwe C.E Nnabuife, amongst others.
