A ruling delivered by Hon. Justice U. Onwusi PhD of the Ebonyi State High Court in the Ovumnte land grab case led to a breakdown of law and order when on 3rd February, 2021, thugs loyal to Chief Anyim Pius Anyim misinterpreted the said ruling and attacked Ovumnte Land Owners at the Ivo Local Government Council headquarters, Isiaka. This incident took place after the Executive Chairman of LGA, Chief Onyebuchi Ogbadu had invited Ovumnte Land Owners and Chief Pius Anyim’s representatives to a meeting at the Local Government Council on 3rd February, 2021, over the ongoing Ovumnte Land Grab Case against Chief Pius Anyim.

It’s a pity that those who supposed to defend the Mass are now those that are creating crises for the Mass. The by now should be arrested and prosecuted for his or her inability to defend the ovumute land owners.
