|Umuoba Anam Indigenes Besiege Igwe Ekwealor's Palace|
March 15, 2017
A save our souls (sos) alert sent to Biafra Writers from the people of Umuoba Anam who are currently protesting within and outside the community has it that the village has been practically over run by fulani herdsmen.
Umuoba Anam is a farming community bordered by Aguleri and Umuleri in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Information has it that the village came under attack and finally ran over after the traditional ruler of the community, Igwe George Ekwealor in the spirit of been "politically correct" and wanting to be addressed as a "Detribalised Nigerian" who is working for the unity of the country granted "Grazing routes and Reserved several plots of land" in the community to the Fulani herdsmen.

Since that decision by the paramount ruler, the fulani herdsmen has brought mayhem and destruction to the community, and Biafraland in general. They have destroyed farm land, raped our women and murdered several villagers who dared to challenge them for destroying their farm produce.
What the people cannot understand is why Igwe George Ekwealor who worked at Nwafor Orizu College of Education, Nsugbe before the mantle of leadership fell on him still cannot read in between the lines and understand that allowing Fulani herdsmen to control our land will only bring sorrow, tears and death to our people?
Are men like the Igwe truly the men of honour that fought the last Biafran war to keep this murderous savages called Fulani herdsmen at bay?

Are men like the Igwe in our land that has brought shame to us truly birthed by Biafran parents? How can the supposedly custodian of the people's tradition turn around to bring "foreign elements" into the land in an exchange for the charade tag of getting seem as a detribalised person?
When Biafra Writer contacted the protesting villagers for further information on the story, one of the protesters, Mazi Nnaemeka Udeh confirmed the development and had this to say....."Igwe George Ekweakor should do the needful and stop giving our land to murderous characters or face the consequences as we can not fold our hands and allow foreigners kill us in our land. These blood bath, tears and sorrows in our community must stop".

Continuing, Mazi Udeh pleaded with Biafra Writers to assist the villagers in telling the world about their plight as he does not see the state government headed by Willie Obiano doing anything to help as his government gives tacit support to the murderous activities of the fulani herdsmen in the state, stating further that the government even goes to the point of paying the media to under report the various activities of fulani herdsmen in the state.
When asked what the Willie Obiano government will gain by paying journalist not to report about the atrocities of the herdsmen in the state, he said "Its all about the politics of 2nd term."
