Ubulu-Uku/Isah-Ogwashi Land Dispute; Court Declares Judgement In Favour Of Ubulu-Uku Kingdom

The lingering legal battle between Ubulu-Uku Kingdom in Aniocha South L.G.A, Delta State and the owner of Blessed Farms, Mr. Blessed Iwedike Utomi was decided yesterday at a high Court sitting in Issele-Uku, head quarters of Aniocha North L.G.A, Delta State.

The millionaire agric entrepreneur, Mr. Utomi had between 2003-2006 amassed to himself a sizeable portion of Ubulu-Uku land towards the Abuedo/Idumu Osume land area, which he converted to a pineapple orchard.

The aftermath of period, having coincided with years of fierce kingship tussle in Ubulu-Uku Kingdom meant that the corrosive and charismatic Idumu-Osume youths had to seek justice themselves. It looked then like a fight between Abuedo/Idumu-Osume vs Blessed Farms, rather than Ubulu-Uku vs Blessed Farms.

This led to the invasion of the farm by irate youths culminating in a legal battle that saw the sentencing of Mr. Azu Nwauloko, Mr. Ezeamaka, Mr. Isika and Mr. Oyibo Ijeh to several durations of jail term with an option of fine.

In all this, Mr. Utomi continued to maintain his defense that he purchased the land from the farmers and dragged the following Ubulu-Uku men before the court.

  1. Pst. Gabriel Michael 
  2. Michael Mbudiche 
  3. Augustine Okafor 
  4. Chief Augustine Okoh 
  5. Afam Nkwor
  6. Ifeanyi Mokwunye
  7. Emmanuel Enuanwa
  8. Michael Mordi
  9. Emmanuel Nwaka 
  10. Innocent Osemene

After over a decade of legal battle, the judgement was delivered yesterday in favor of Ubulu-Uku by Hon. Justice Ogeisi who presided over the case at  Issele uku high Court, Aniocha North LGA, Delta State.

In celebration, UYDC and the land owners danced round Ubulu-Uku Kingdom in celebration.
Speaking to Arise-Africa, UYDC president Comr. Austin Enyi said that..

"We are very happy with the judgement. Justice delayed is not justice denied. Now, we can shift our attention to the Ubulu-Uku boundaries at OPC".

He called on well meaning sons and daughters of Ubulu-Uku kingdom to throw their weights behind the UYDC and assist in sponsoring her developmental programs
