Abba And Ukpo: Chimamanda Adichie & Arthur Eze's Towns Resume Hostilities by Samakus(m): 8:14am On May 22
Barely 48 hours after they returned from a High Court in Anambra over their age- long land tussle, indigenes of Abba and Ukpo communities have resumed hostilities in the area.

While Abba is in Njikoka local government area of Anambra State, Ukpo is in Dunukofia Council Area but they are neighbors.

Residents of Abba woke up on Thursday to see some bulldozers believed to be from Ukpo, demolishing the country homes of a business mogul in the area and CEO of Best Aluminum Group, Chief Goddy Nweke and his brother, Sir Pius Nweke, Chairman, Best Aluminum Group.

The situation has created tension in the two local government areas with truck load of policemen deployed to the place.

One of the community leaders from Abba, Mr. Alex Maduka, told The Nation elders in the community had to prevail on the restive youths to remain calm.

He said the angry youths had spoiled for a full blown war with their neighbours

When contacted, the Anambra State Police Commissioner, John Abang, said what he knew was that Ukpo people had a Court judgement against Abba,adding ” perhaps, it was what they wanted to enforce today.

Another Senior Police Officer, a Chief Supritendent of Police, CSP, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the development.

He said the Command deployed men to prevent any break down of law and order, adding that their duty was to protect lives and property

In February 2019, Abba main market which is owned by Njikoka Local Government and parts of Abba Secondary School, a state government owned school,were demolished in such circumstances allegedly by Ukpo under strict directive by a popular billionaire from the town.

Maduka claimed that the demolitions had made indigenes of Abba lose millions and brought so much pains among the people.

He wondered why security operatives and the State Government had not taken decisive actions to end the crisis between Abba and Ukpo, which had lingered for about 50 years.

According to him: “We persuaded our people who came out yesterday not to retaliate because the police are not on our side as any action we take might result in human casualties.

“In as much as we do not want to engage Ukpo people in physical confrontation, we will continue to engage them in court until we get justice.”

Na wa ooo

If Nigeria should break up , all regions will have massive civil war

In fact the region I fear would go to war quickly is the Niger delta , and when they do it would be very messy

OP, why make it sound like a community clash

The matter was before the court and the ukpo won! The Nigerian police was with the bulldozer. So, what's the problem

Besides was the man (Nweke) not the same man mentioned not too long ago the one forcefully collecting people's land in Chimamanda's home town

I might be wrong but if I am right, congratulations to the people for getting justice in the law court!

I hope this serves as a deterrent to those forcefully taking people's land

Especially that of the poor!!!

Ukpo and land grabbing be like 5 & 6. Ukpo don sell all their lands finish.

Abba and trouble making na fraternal twins.

Both should respect court order and the aggrieved party can always exercise her constitutional right to appeal.
