Anambra community laments illegal land sales

People of Isuaniocha community in Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State have described as worrisome the illegal sales of communal land by certain members of the community.

A former President General of the community, Chief Anthony Onyeagolu regretted that despite the crisis in the community occasioned by land tussle, some members of the community have constituted themselves into a group, terrorizing the community and selling off its land.

He said “The situation in our community is very pitiable today. Some people have constituted themselves into tormentors and they are selling off community land, and people are buying and building on them, even as I speak to you now.

“They have chased away many families in the community, and they are using the opportunity to sell the landed property of all the families that have left the community, using the money to buys cars and marry new wives.

“The few people who have resisted the sales of our land have been kidnapped and taken into the forest, where they are tied up and beaten until their family pays ransom for their release.”

While warning those buying landed property in Isuaniocha to be careful,
Onyeagolu maintained that those buying properties from the cabal in the village would lose them as soon as peace returned to the community.

“If you want to buy land from a community that is not yours, the right thing to do is to go and make enquires from the elders of the land. Stop accepting whatever land speculators tell you, because once peace returns, you’ll forfeit your land,” he warned.
