Opinion: Chevron Joint Investigation Visit (JIV) Should Not Be Used For Political Solution Outside Court Solution by Itsekiri Politicians - Yomere
Hon. Armstrong Yomere


Since 1997 till today, the Ijaw of Gbamaratu don’t want to accept the truth and Court judgment reached with the people of Bakokodia/Kokodiagbene and Okerenghigho/ Okerenkoko. 

 

It will interest the public to know the forefathers of the present Ijaw settlers has already fashion a way or system how both tribes can live and intermarry without using the word NA ME GET LAND, if only we can adhere to the terms of settlement initiated by their elders in the year 1975 and judgement was reached in the year 1980. 

 

The Judgement of 1980, 10th of April in suit No. W/35/1975 (terms of settlement) was as a result of the injunction granted by the Supreme Court of Nigeria, Holden in Lagos state on Saturday, 2nd of July, 1966, before their lordships, Sir Vahe Bairamian, Charles Oyneama and Micheal Oguejiofo Ajegbo , suit number S.C. 393/1964. 

 

The people of Omadino needed an everlasting solution to stop future litigation and problems of ownership like what is happening now over the joint investigation visit by chevron, that is being disrupted rudely by the Ijaw of Gbaramatu Kingdom or clan. The people of Gbaramatu did not go to Court over land ownership, neither do the people of Omadino reached terms of settlement with the Gbaramatu people. 

 

However, the injunction restraining the Defendants (Ijaw of Bakokodia/ Kokodiagbene) from putting tenants to farm and also from granting fishing tenancies or rights and collecting fishing rents or grant rights to fell timber or felling timber for sale; from interfering with the plaintiffs fishing rights or from preventing the plaintiffs from collecting rents from tenants. 

 

In addition, the injunction shall not prevent the Defendants ( Ijaw of Bakokodia/Kokodiagbene) from farming for their own use, from felling timber for their own use , from fishing for their own use and selling fish, they will also enjoy the said land without the plaintiffs affecting their livelihood from fishing or farming or selling timber for the use. 

 

Finally, let me plead with the public to read this write up, they should help Omadino people to beg the Deputy Governor and Chevron to use legal documents initiated by the people of the deputy governor tag terms of settlement to follow the sharing formula of 2/3 and 1/3. More also, we will enforce the injunction and also enforce the terms of settlement on both the Delta state government and Chevron for breaching Supreme Court judgements . 

 

Let us embrace peace and forget about initiating or creating another round of unrest in Warri, we have suffered enough in the hands of NA ME GET LAND, which has plugged Warri into darkness and underdevelopment. 

 

NO BODY HAVE THE MONOPOLY OF VIOLENCE
