Cleric accuses college provost of land encroachment

*He’s a liar— Prof Omebe

By Peter Okutu

ABAKALIKI—A cleric of the Assemblies of God Church, Rev. Nwaogu Emmanuel, has petitioned Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State over alleged encroachment into his land at Ugwuachara in Ebonyi Local Government Area by the Provost of Ikwo College of Education, Prof. Silas Omebe.

In a six-paragraph petition addressed to the governor by Nwaogu, entitled, ‘Report of oppression, intimidation, suppression and forceful encroachment into my land by one Prof Omebe,’ the petitioner appealed to the governor to wade into the matter.

But in a quick reaction, Prof. Omebe stated: “The the man is a liar; he is looking for trouble. Everything he wrote in his petition is complete falseh- ood and malicious. If he is not careful I will sue him.”

Nwaogu’s petition read in part: “I wish to bring to your notice a case of oppression, intimidation and forceful encroachment into my land situated at Iddah Echara Community in Ebonyi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State with survey plan No. DA/EB146/2013 by one Professor Omebe, the Provost College of Education Ikwo.”
