WE DEMAND CHEVRON, OTHER IOCs, FEDERAL AND DELTA STATE GOVERNMENTS, RESPECT AND OBEY COURT JUDGEMENTS - OMADINO COMMUNITY
Hon. Armstrong Omaretsuli Yomere


 

  

Over 500 years ago long before the coming of Ginuwa the 1st Olu of Warri kingdom , the founder of Omadino community and environs , landed and Founded Okerenghigho corrupted to Okerenkoko which at that time has not been inhabited by any person or group of persons. Oba Osho Lenuwa ti Ode Omi kingdom and his domestics aides  cleared the place and inhabited all the surroundings. 

 

The Ijaw  settlers came during the 88 years interregnum of the Warri kingdom , to be precise, it was during the reign of governor Chanomi, they  approached the governor for a place to live and governor Chanomi seek the permission of the Omadino people, it was granted. 

 

The Ijaws settlers on Omadino peoples lands has being fighting  Omadino people over land ownership and the Omadino people exercise their acts of ownership in the land dispute in various Courts  in Nigeria. 

 

The ownership, possession and possessory rights on the lands founded by Oba Osho ( Lenuwa), fought and won many legal suites by the people of Omadino community. The first of such suit was between Chief Edema .E. Sillo and others ( Itsekiri) Versus Adurumokumor and others ( Ijaw), in suit W/29/49 which commenced at Warri High Court and fought to its finality at the west African court of appeal, it was reported in 14 WACA 123. 

 

The second was W/37/61, Chief Sillo and others (Itsekiri ) versus Adurumokumor and others(Ijaw)  . The third was W/30/62, chief Sillo (Itsekiri) and others Versus James Uluba ( Ijaw), justice Obaseki held that the Ijaws of Okerenghigho are tenants of Omadino people, the Ijaws then appealed to the Supreme Court presided over by Elias, C,J. Sowewimo and Ibekwe S.C. JJ, in suit No SC. 37/1973, they lost and suit No W/132/70- fought at the Warri High Court between Johnson Mene and others versus Shell - BP Development Company of Nigeria Limited and Gbaminide Kpompolo ; for themself and on behalf of Egwa clan). 

 

The Management Committee of the Trust , Omadino Community , we want to state clearly to the Delta state  government, Warri South-West LGA, Warri South LGA, Warri North LGA,  IOCs and other Nigerians doing business on Omadino community lands , they should stop any dealings with tenants on Omadino lands and also obey Court  judgements, we will enforce our judgements , failure to respect the ownership rights of Omadino people and the terms of settlement reached at the Federal High Court Benin, 1980. 

 

In conclusion, we are soliciting to the Federal Government of Nigeria to interfere and call the government of Delta state to order and also relocate the headquarter of Warri South-West to the rightful place, Ogidigben community.

 

We are aware, that, the Court told us to allow them live on the lands, but never to lay claim of ownership. The Ijaws of Gbaramatu clan, have killed handful numbers of Omadino sons and daughters, they deprive Omadino people from using their lands, because, they are granted permission to carry guns around Nigeria and constant threat to our survival. 

 

No man has the monopoly of violence.
