Ogbe-Ijoh/Aladja crisis: Group applauds Ijaw, Urhobo monarchs over resolution

A group, Concerned Members for Peace in Ogbe-Ijoh, Warri Kingdom, Delta State, has applauded Ijaw and Urhobo monarchs,  who attended last Tuesday’s security meeting towards finding lasting solution to the Ogbe-Ijoh and Aladja boundary dispute.

The group, in a statement, yesterday, by its coordinator, Friday Deinghan, also urged the monarchs and the Delta State Government to be wary of politicians in the area who are trying to proffer political solutions to the crisis.

He said: “We hope the Delta State Government would immediately go into action by implementing the findings of the Prof. Abednego Ekoko-led panel as advised by the monarchs and leaders because some politicians are already set to thwart their efforts.

“We are also using this medium to urge all contractors embarking on one form of contract or another in the area to mobilise back to site because on peace and development we stand.”
