The Omerelu apex community union, Association of Omerelu Chairmen ( Onu-Omopi, Ohaneze OmuokparaOga, Ala Ndi Nma Omuagwor and Omuohombia Element Union), have sternly warned against further media attack against the Community’s OSPAC Command.
The group called on those involved in the unwanton act to desist forthwith or be prepared to dance what they described as ‘an unknown dance’.
This was part of the content of a statement issued by the Chairmen, Chief Geoffrey U. Amadi, David Wokeme, Albert Ohakwe and Chief Emmanuel Ibekwe respectively and made available to the media in Port Harcourt on Monday as they expressed dissatisfaction over the development and sued for calm at all quarters.
The Omerelu apex group also informed that the community was yet to have a formidable youth body since the State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike had proscribed all Youth Associations except those profiled by the Department of State Security Service.
They also called on media operators to be up their game by insisting tounearth the identities of anyone bringing community issues for them.
“We have our internal ways of dispute mechanism. Those who never want the light of the community now want to represent darkness”, they said, as they threatened to banish anyone or group found guilty of publishing the Omerelu OSPAC in a bad light.
The statement called particularly on the so-called Omerelu Youth Association to use their youthfulness and defend the community rather than involving themselves on what they called cheap campaign of calumny and black mail.
On way forward, they said every hand must be on deck, adding that community issues must be left at the purview of the community leaders.
Meanwhile, they have appealed with all Military and Para-Military formations in the State including the DSS not to take briefs from anyone henceforth unless from the community heads, and promised to work with them in order to enthrone peaceful environment.
