President and leader of the Ogbe-Ijoh Indigenous Ladies, Hon. Igangan Regina has cautioned the Urhobo Progress Union (UPU) over incidiary remark against the Ogbe-Ijoh people in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State.

Hon. Regina Igangan made the position of the Ogbe-Ijoh Indigenous Ladies known earlier today in Warri via a statement she personally signed on behalf of the women, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.

According to her, the UPU delegation that went to Aladja via their remarks clearly shows that they are issuing threat to the Ogbe-Ijoh people.

Speaking further, Regina asserted that the UPU is trying to paint a picture as if it is the Ogbe-Ijoh people that have been attacking the Aladja people, alleging that it is rather the Aladja people that have over the years breached all peace accords and have constantly invaded Ogbe-Ijoh community at every given opportunity with so much impunity.

Nevertheless, Regina said the Ogbe-Ijoh people are one of the most peaceful people in Delta State, adding that their Aladja brothers are taking the peaceful disposition of the Ogbe-Ijoh people for granted.

“Up till now, Aladja daughters that are married to Ogbe-ljoh men are still comfortably staying in Ogbe-ljoh without any threat, if Ogbe-ljoh is as troublesome as UPU is tagging them, we wouldn’t have allowed them to stay.

They should point out Ogbe-ljoh daughter that is married to an Aladja son that is still staying in Aladja with them in this period of the crisis” Igangan added.

Meanwhile, the former supervisory councillor in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, Regina Igangan had also advised Governor Oborevwori to be wary of the UPU and their comment, stressing that the Ijaws knows that he is an Urhobo man before they massively voted for him to become the Governor of Delta State.
