The Irigwe groups called on SEMA and NEMA to carry out an assessment on all the affected communities, with a view to providing succour.


That the aforementioned tiers of government, “Should as a matter of utmost importance initiate a rebuilding plan to have all the houses razed down rebuilt, so as to enable the owners return to their ancestral lands.

They also called for immediate compensation of the people whose farmlands and crops were destroyed.

“Justice in its fullness in all the killings of all innocent Rigwe sons ‘and daughters”, they demanded.
