Sylvester Idowu in Warri

The paramount ruler of Uvwie Kingdom in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State, HRM Emmanuel Ekemejewan Sideso, Abe I the Ovie of Uvwie Kingdom, has appealed to the Peace Building Committe set up by the State Government over land ownership tussle of Enerhen community between Uvwie and Udu Local Government areas to ensure that justice prevail.

The monarch made the appeal over the weekend while receiving Uvwie descendants of Onoserhi, Eduo, Aregbe and Ekere who sold and leased land in the community in Uvwie but which is now put under Udu Local Government area.

The disputed land belonged to Uvwie descendants but was leased and sold out in Enerhen community but the land now falls under Udu Local Government area after its creation.

This development however did not go down well with the descendants of Uvwie who felt their land should have been carved and placed under Uvwie Local Government which belongs to them.

But during their visit, the Ovwie Uvwie Kingdom commended the families for their peaceful disposition towards resolving the matter and urged the committe to do a thorough job.

The Uvwie monarch who commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for setting up the Peace Building Adhoc Committee however reiterated that the Dame Patience Uduehi 5 man Adhoc committee should do a thorough job so that peace should not be built on injustice

The Uvwie descendants of Onoserhi, Eduo, Aregbe and Ekere, who sold and leased lands in the community, had pleaded with the Delta State Government through their royal father not to tamper with the present statuesque of the community as regards where its belongs and its ownership.
