IPOB FAMILY UNIT INAUGURATED AT ALINKARALEGWU COMMUNITY IN OHAJI/EGBEMA LGA, IMO STATE, BIAFRALAND

IPOB FAMILY UNIT INAUGURATED AT ALINKARALEGWU COMMUNITY IN OHAJI/EGBEMA LGA, IMO STATE, BIAFRALAND

Inauguration of a family unit of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was successfully carried out at Alinkaralegwu  - Obiakpu community, Egbema in Ohaji/Egbema local government area of Imo State, Biafraland. IPOB Imo State Coordinator, Mazi Abraham rounded up the year 2019 activities with this exercise which took place on Monday 30th December 2019. Laid down procedures were duly observed to the joy and satisfaction of the family members.

The Imo State Coordinator expressing his gratitude, further enlightened the people on the importance of uniqueness in the restoration struggle. He charged them to be resolute, courageous and fully committed, warning against acts of treachery and insubordination. Mazi Lucky U. was appointed the new family unit coordinator while Mazi Nwabiara A. assumed the office of his deputy.

Mazi Abraham narrating his experience on his arrival at Alinkaralegwu village, decried the disgusting presence of more than fifteen (15) combined security teams consisting of the Nigerian Police Force and others, operating various illegal checkpoints and brazenly extorting money from helpless commercial divers of both taxis and motorcycles. Alinkaralegwu village is home to a lot of oil wells, which are being operated by Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), a multi-national oil company, with virtually no significant presence of development to show forth. There is no electricity in the community for over sixteen (16) years, neither does any of the indigenes own an oil well.

Further interviews carried out revealed that during wet (rainy) seasons, indigenes of Alinkaralegwu community forcefully relocate to neighboring communities to escape the danger of deadly erosions. Their farmlands/crops equally get seriously affected. The menace of the influx of joint security operatives into the community, instils fear in the indigenous landowners against staging anti-institutional protests for the insensitivity to their plights.
