PROTEST

 


EKITI STATE

 

Demolition: Ekiti landlords protest
over #82.6m unpaid compensation.

Some landlords of the demolished Ijoka Quarters, in Ado-Ekiti, the State capital, Thursday, staged a protest over property worth N82.6 million that was pulled down by the State Government
for the construction of a Bus Terminal.

The protesters described as callous, insensitive, and wicked, the government’s refusal to pay the requisite compensation, four years after demolishing their property.

The placard-carrying protesters visited the Bus Terminal construction site and the Palace of Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejugbe, to vent their grievances.

Addressing journalists during the protest, spokesman of the aggrieved landlords, Mr. Afolabi Ogunsakin, lamented perceived Governor Kayode Fayemi’s alleged nonchalant posture to
pay their compensations, after being evicted at short notice.

He said: “Our dear ancestral home was demolished in 2016 by the state government without consideration for hardship and negative effects that we experienced.

“All negotiations regarding payment of compensations to members had been fruitless. After several appeals, it became clear that the government was not ready to pay us our entitlements.
It is also clear that delay in payment of our entitlements was deliberate.

“The community wants to state categorically here that henceforth, steps will be taken to disturb workers on site. We are ready to damn the consequences until the government pays
us our entitlements”.

Also fuming over the delay, the Head of the family, Chief Laisi Opokiti, regretted how they were being allegedly deceived by the government, saying: ” Many tombs where our forefathers
were buried were leveled during the demolition. We know that their spirits will fight.

“Four years, four months, and two days after demolition, the government didn’t pay us a dime. Governor Fayemi said he had approved the money, but it was not given to us. We appeal
that they give us our entitlements”.

Also speaking, the Community’s Youth Leader, Hon Olasehinde Omotoso, disclosed that they had visited the Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, Mr. Diran Adesua and the
Director-General, Bureau of Lands, Mrs Funke Falodun, despite their efforts were futile.

“We have visited them several times, but it seems they were deceiving us. We are not saying Governor
Fayemi is bad, he is a good man, but we want him to order the payment of our compensation.

“If they refuse, the spirits of those that were buried here and those whose houses were demolished will fight back if they refuse to pay us”, he stated.

Oba Adejugbe, represented by Omosio of Ado Ekiti, Chief Opeyemi Abiola, appealed to the protesters not to be unruly and destructive in their actions.

“We will relay your message to Kabiyesi. Baba will be around next Tuesday so that you can return here to ventilate your anger. He will take up your case with all relevant government
agencies”.

DELTA STATE

 

BREAKING: Delta communities protest, block major roads
as 12 residents killed by unknown gunmen are laid to rest today.

Indigenes of Oleh community, headquarters of Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State, on Thursday, barricaded all entry points into the community, protesting against the
killing of 12 residents by unknown gunmen.

The 12 indigenes were gruesomely murdered on October 12, 2020 on farmland in Oleh by gunmen suspected to be from Ozoro community.

The two Isoko communities have been at loggerheads for some time following a lingering boundary dispute that has defied all efforts employed to resolve the issue.

SaharaReporters gathered that the victims are to be buried on Thursday (today) in the community, evoking anger and leading to the protest by mostly women and youths.

The protesters called on the state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa to fulfil his promise to bring all those involved in the murder to justice.

The protest which started around 7:00 am caused serious gridlock along the busy Ughelli-Asaba-Ozoro Road, leaving motorists and commuters stranded and some forced to take alternative
routes.

Some of the protesters who spoke with our correspondent called for a thorough investigation into the murder, adding that some leaders of Ozoro community have many questions to answer.

The protesters accused the people of Ozoro of crimes against humanity but described the people of Oleh as peace-loving.

They said, “Amidst all provocative actions of the Ozoro people, Oleh had always sought peace”.

They called on President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Inspector-General of Police, the state police commissioner and Director-General of the State Security Service (aka
Department of State Services), to intensify efforts in fishing out those behind the killing and bring them to justice to serve as a deterrent to others.

The people of Ozoro community through its former President General, Nicholas Areh had denied the involvement of the community in the killing, noting that Oleh natives were only fanning
the embers of war with the way and manner they were going about the issue.

He said the farm in Oleh where the people were gruesomely murdered by unidentified persons was not in dispute.

As of the time of filing this report, all shops, markets, banks, and social activities had been shut down in Oleh community while economic and official activities at Ozoro community
were operating skeletally.
