•Government to occupy land in three weeks

Asaba – The Delta State Government have today declared the Ogbe-Ijoh and Aladja disputed land in Udu Local Government and Warri South West Local Government Areas of the State a Security zone for three weeks.

The announcement noted that the decision to declare the disputed land a Security zone within three weeks follows the ongoing work of the eight man committee set up by the Delta State Government.

It read “It is hereby announced for the Information of the general public, particularly people living in Udu and Warri South-West Local Government areas, that in furtherance of the on-going work of the eight-man panel of enquiry investigating the boundary dispute between Aladja Community in Udu Local Government Area and Ogbe-Ijoh Community in Warri South-West Local Government Area, it has become necessary to declare the entire stretch of land between Aladja and Ogbe-Ijoh Communities, from Warri/Forcados Rivers into the hinterland, a Security Zone for a period of three weeks.”

It added “Consequently, the Delta State Government has by this announcement declared the said stretch of land a Security Zone and this declaration shall subsist and remain in force from Monday, 22 August, 2016 to Monday, 12 September, 2016 (both dates inclusive).”

The government further warned against any possible economic activities, human traffic and advised the general public to be guided and adhere to the warning within the stipulated period.

It would be recalled that the said piece of land have pitched the Ijaws of Ogbe-Ijoh community in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State against their Urhobo brothers of Aladja Community in Udu Local Government Area that have claimed the lives of citizens.
