Delta women protest against Regina Daniels husband Ned Nwoko

Women of Idumuje-Ugboko community under Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State on Wednesday took to the street to protest against Nigerian billionaire and former federal lawmakers, Ned Nwoko. He was accused of tormenting indigenes and incarcerating their husbands, relatives and sons.

Nwoko is being accused of forcefully taking over several hectares of land belonging to members of the community.

The protesting women of various ages under the umbrella of Concerned Women of Idumuje-Ugboko, were armed with placards bearing different inscriptions while storming the Delta State Government House, Asaba, the capital, to register their grievances, according to Sahara Reporters.

The women, who accused Nwoko of promoting the insecurity in the town, disclosed that their husbands, sons and relatives were being incarcerated in Abuja on the orders of the Nigerian billionaire.

The protesting women also accused the local government council chairman of working for Nwoko by “legitimising illegality through issuance of customary rights of occupancy on lands under customary dispute and legal litigation”.

In a petition to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, women of the community alleged that Nwoko forcefully dispossessed farmers of their ancestral land for private commercial ventures.

It reads:

The women wondered why the Governor Okowa-led government had not deemed it fit to present a staff of office to the traditional ruler, Obi Chukwunomso Nwoko, three years after he was traditionally installed after all necessary tradition and customs had been followed.
