In suggesting ways to tackle the lingering crisis, Amb. Mamamu had advocated that the disputed land/boundary be used for military barracks, stressing that such gesture will permanently bring peace between the two warring communities. 

However, the young ECOWAS peace ambassador had particularly tasked both communities to be calm, adding that fighting and killing themselves is not needed instead they should live together as neighbours and brothers that they are.

On his part, National Co-ordinator of IGL ,Hon FELIX YERINBOWEI COMPANY had stated that  if His Excellency,  Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa as a sitting governor of Delta State couldn’t solve the age-long  communal  conflict of Ogbe-Ijoh/Aladja, he should not be expecting votes from the area come 2023.

Meanwhile, the Independent Grassroot Liberator (IGL) is a political grassroot based pressure group in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State with membership that cut across the entire local government. 

The group recently staged a one thousand man march at Ogbe-Ijoh community, headquarters of Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State with members showcasing their PVs with a vow that no one will speak for them as they have decided to take their political destinies into their own hands.
