The position of Okwu Olokoro Autonomous Community, Umuahia South LGA, Abia State on Okwu Land

We, the indigenous people of Okwu Olokoro Autonomous community in Umuahia South LGA of Abia State, hereby state unequivocally and categorically that we do not have any agreement with the management of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike (MOUAU),on the acquisition of our land for whatever purpose or usage.

We are aware that the University is making clandestine and frantic efforts to forcefully take our land without due process.

And this portends danger and deliberate act to destabilize the state of peace in our land.

We note that they have held a number of inconclusive discussions with us and we have been waiting patiently for their further actions in negotiations with us and this has NOT happened.

But surprisingly, we have discovered that the University is making desperate efforts to wantonly and unilaterally finalize the acquisition of both our habitat and farmlands forcefully.

We hereby appeal to the State Government to call the University authorities to order as the survival and well being of our people depend on the land in question. Only this will nip the looming trouble in the bud.

Okwu people will not fold our hands and watch helplessly as this negative machination takes place. The University is therefore warned to thread the path of caution.

We are a peace loving people and will expect the University to respect this.
