The people of Ngwogwo community, Ishiagu, in the Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, on Monday protested against the alleged incessant arrest and detention of some members of the community. The protestors, consisting of old women, men and youths, marched around the community with placards.

They alleged that they had been indiscriminately arrested and detained by the police following frivolous petitions by one of their own, Barrister Uchenna Orji, a former Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, who is now a Special Assistant to the Minister of Works, Engr David Umahi. The chairman of the community, Mr Ogbonna Sunday Okeke, urged Governor Francis Nwifuru to sustain the peace he had brought to the community by ordering an election that ushered in new leaders of the area.

'Uchenna Orji is the only influential figure we have in our community. What we need from him is government attention and projects. He should stop bringing crises to our community. 'What we need in our community is development, peace and progress. We don't need any more crises. If Uchenna Orji continues to cause trouble in our community through indiscriminate arrests of our sons and daughters, we will have no choice but to banish him, and he will have to face us squarely.
