Okenwa, while speaking to the newsmen said, “the land, especially at the location of the Industrial Development Centre (IDC), which was leased to the state government by the community and subsequently handed over to the  Federal Government by the state, housed the IDC built by the government at the centre in 1980”.

    He added that “But due to the scarcity of land in the community and conversion of the land to the den of kidnappers, the landowners decided to approach the state government to give them back part of it, which was granted two years ago, but now expressed surprise by the level of encroachment.”
