And others who brought evidence of paying for one, two and three plots of land at same APO LAYOUT IN OMAGWA said ‘’we have been trying to get possession of our property since after the installments payment but to no avail, each time they allocate land to us and you put pillars or beacon to demarcate the land if come the next day, you discover that someone else has already removed your beacon and when you go to them they will tell you sorry that they will allot you another place, but we don’t want another place but a refund of our monies.
Mr. IBEZIM UCHE said look at the 4 of us sitting here, we were allocated to the same plot of land. We are tired of fighting each other we decided to come together to fight our common enemy which is the man that sold one plot of land to five of us, this DE villa man has finished us honestly. Instead coming to fix the problems he created he wrote petition to the commissioner of police in Rivers state that we were threatening his Life, now that we are here let him give us our money, because there is no other means to get to him. If you go their Office at MGBUOBA IN PORT HARCOURT, the ARMY of Mopol men will not even allow you to come close to the office.
The fraudster Dr. Felix Nwaorgu in response admitted that all the documents presented by the protesters were genuine but that the money has been used to purchase somewhere else to be able to meet his or customers’ demands
