THE Nigeria National Petroleum Cooperation (NNPC) required for ten thousand hectares of land in Onicha local government area of Ebonyi state, according to NNPC the land is going to be used for construction of mega filling station branch of the Nigeria oil firm in the area and use some part for Agricultural purposes for cash crop productions.

A reliable source in Ebonyi state government revealed to IPOB Ebonyi media that the federal government of Nigeria which has remained in the forefront of the RUGA settlement of the Fulani herdsmen in all parts of Biafra land is using NNPC as a camouflage to confiscate the land from the people of Onicha as to pave way for Fulani herdsmen to come in and take over the land from the genuine owners.

The 10,000 hectares of land mapped out for the project is legitimately owned by the people of Agbabor and Isu communities precisely in Onicha LGA of Ebonyi state.

Report from our correspondent in Onicha LGA on this development   has it that some notable and influential Nigerian politicians which hail from the jurisdiction have been aiding the actualization of the goal to confiscate the land from the people in order to sustain their political ambitions and selfish interests to the detriment of the people.

Speaking with some members of the communities of Agbabor and Isu the rightful owners of the land on what they feel as a result of the situation, some who spoke on the condition of anonymity revealed that the people do not accept giving out their land for any purpose to anybody or firm even NNPC.

The people of Agbabor and Isu communities facing this heinous crime plotted against them therefore called the attention of the world to the atrocities being committed against them and the people of Biafra in their own land.

In the effort to further suppress and subjugate the people that owns the land into giving it out the Onicha LGA chairman Mr. Felix Ogbonnaya established a new security outfit in the local government called ISAKABA BOYS, they serve as task force for the government as well as punish those who refused to obey government frivolous orders and politicians’ bids irrespective of negative effects on the people.

So far, the owners of the land have remained undefeated on their decision as they vowed never to give their land to anybody or group of people for any reason or whatsoever.

Based on facts and figures ascertained on this scenario many concluded that the land is not going to be used by NNPC for any construction of their mega filling station but to hand it to Fulani herdsmen for RUGA settlement.
