WARRI- TWO Ugborodo leaders in Delta State, former chair, Ugborodo Community Trust, Ugborodo, Mr. Sandys Omadeli Uvwoh and activist, Mr. Alex Eyengho, weekend, tongue- lashed the president of the Federated Niger Delta Ijaw Communities, FNDIC, Dr Bello Oboko, over his recent claim that the Delta State Government had acquired land from two Ijaw communities for the Gbaramatu Deep Seaport project.
Oboko had while reacting to a statement by esteemed Itsekiri leader, Pa J. O. S Ayomike, that government had not acquired land for the project, faulted his position, saying the state government acquired not less than 335,554 hectares of Kpokpo/Okpeleama land for project in 2013.
