Its indeed a full blown war and war of words as Nigerian award winning writer Chimamanda Adichie accused Nigerian and Anambra billionaire Engr Arthur Eze, popularly known as Eze na Ukpo over land grabbing.
The two popular persons are both from anambra state and from Abba and Ukpo towns respectively, though from different local governments but the two towns shares a common boundary which is the bone of contention.
Chimamanda, wrote an open letter appealing for something to be done to the intimidation being metted out on his towns people which she believes that the billionaire Arthur Eze is the man behind the cause of the whole problem.
In her letter, she stated that Ukpo the hometown of Arthur have encroached their land, claiming that some portions of the land known to belong to her hometown Abba now belongs to Ukpo. She explained further that they woke up one morning to discover that all the sign posts placed at the boundaries which shows the entrance to Abba kingdom with the inscription Welcome to Abba have all been removed by some men which she believes were been mobilized by Eze.
She stated that Arthur Eze is fond of taking other neighboring communities land which she says he has also done that to Abagana who also shares the same boundary with Ukpo because of his wealth and power. She said also that her village women were also chased out of their popular daily market oye Abba which is also at the boundary by some police men being sent by Arthur and their wares also destroyed.
She is calling on the appropriate authorities to come to the aid of his towns men and save them from the tyranny of the Billionaire.
