ONITSHA, Anambra, Nigeria – Women of Uturu Community ,  Isuikwuato Local Government Area of Abia State have taken  their case to God for intervention against killings and kidnapping of their  children by bandits .

Our reporter  gathered there have been incessant killings, kidnapping by bandits along the  border of   Ihube junction, Okigwe in Imo State and Uturu in Abia state. This is the  only link road  to Abia State University Uturu (ABSU)from either  Okigwe in lmo State  and Uturu in Abia state.

Speaking to our reporter  in Uturu, Abia State , the  President General of Uturu Development Association UDA,Chief Chidi Uturu Ogbaegbe, said that the women have resorted  to God, as  the only the power that  can help to save  the community .

According to him, the entire Uturu community  is happy that their mothers are organsing themselves together  for prayers to ask God to intervene in the killings, kidnappings and banditry taking place at Ihube junction end of Uturu Okigwe road.

He said that God will grant their prayers because it appears , the town is hopeless and helpless. He  said that prayer session was timely  and opt to  ward off the evil acts by the  killers  and kidnappers  in the town. According to him,  there is nothing prayers  and God cannot do.

“With God ,all things are possible and we believe that He  will hear mothers prayers and save us from this calamities ‘ he said. He said  that only few   youths and their leaders are allowed  to be  in the prayer session  to avoid unforeseen circumstances.

” I am happy the youth leader has retracted his  earlier  post and they  have selected few youths to join other security officers and personnel to guide and regulate the movement of our dear mothers” he said .


He urged the women to be peaceful   throughout the exercise. Ogbagbe also enjoined all to remain peaceful as God will certainly hear their prayers.

Speaking on the incessant killings and kidnappings of Uturu sons and daughters plying the  road , one of the youths leaders , Comrade Ifeanyi Orji said that the activities  have been going on  over two years and the state government was not doing anything.

He regretted that despite the road being  the only on e linking the State university,   little or no attention is paid to secure the students and others.

Also speaking on the matter ,Mrs Uchenna Nkechi said that prayer has become  imperative because there is nothing they can do apart from seeking God’s face.

According to her, Uturu town had lost many people and money as result of the criminal activities along the  road and it appears that government is not disturbed.

“This time, we are reporting our case to God and there is nothing we can do rather than  seeking God’s  intervention to save us. Uturu – Okigwe road is the only road linking  Uturu town with other towns. It is sad that government is not doing anything even when our children in the university have become victims severally ” she said.
