Imo Oil communities fault Okorocha’s wife amnesty c’ttee

—Youths of oil communities in Imo
State, from Awarra Court Area of Ohaji/
Egbema Local Government Area in the state,
yesterday, alleged that the activities of the
amnesty committee headed by Nkechi
Okorocha, was “one sided.”

The President of Awarra Court Area Youth
Council, ACAYOC, Marcellinus Enyia, stated
this while speaking to Vanguard in Owerri.
He argued that those considered to be
representing the Awarra Court Area were
because of their “political alignment” and that
the “engagement process is not all inclusive.”

It was his view that there was no proper
consultation with the “genuine leaders” of the
communities, according to him, who
understood the level of their suffering and
what their priority should be.
He said: “ The committee never engaged with
the leaders and stakeholders of Awarra Court
Area to know how a sustainable peace will be
achieved in the area.
“Up till now, there is no defined blueprint of
reintegration programme for the entire people
of Awarra Court Area, which has been
traumatized by armed conflict.
“We should not be talking of only militants but
those their buildings were destroyed, their
businesses damaged and some families lost
their breadwinners.
“We, therefore, call for a review of the
committee’s engagement process to speed up
actualization of the mission and vision for
which the committee was set up for.”
