The Ezeokweghi/Ezeofor Royal Family of Enugwu-Nanka, Orumba North Local Government of Anambra State, have called on the government to intervene in the crisis ravaging their community.

Concerned members begged the government to intervene so youths would not go on the rampage.
According to the family, the crisis had been on since 10 years.
It said some people forged the community’s constitution, which recognised seven villages, to one endorsing only five villages.
A petition by the family’s Chairman Chief Ben Okeke and Assistant Secretary Wilfred Okafor reads: “Approval for the forged constitution was given based on misrepresentation and suppression of facts. The state was not present when the constitution was written; the group altered the original constitution and presented it to the government.
“We, therefore, call on Governor Willie Obiano, chief judge; attorney-general; director of Public Prosecution; Ministry of Justice and the administrative judge of Aguata High Court in Ekwulobia to quicken delivery of justice in this matter.”
