It is a cold, harmattan-enveloped, Sunday morning but the youths in Enugu-Ngwo defy the weather and faith by skipping church and bracing the cold weather to assemble in unity to loosen their community from the chokehold of a few individuals alleged to be plotting to steer the community back into the turbulent waters of chaos.
The youths of Enugu-Ngwo today rose with a strong resolve to pass a stern warning to the alleged individuals whose actions and utterances are alleged to be threatening the life of the President-General, John Enwu and to cause a disturbing rift in the community in Enugu-Ngwo.
The palm leaves were presented to the elders of the immediate family and the cbairman of the respective Umunna of the individuals.
According to the customs and traditions of Enugu-Ngwo, a person who acts abominably or whose conduct is deemed to be anti-social is usually warned by either placing folded palm tree leaves at his gate or given to his father or elder to serve as a stern warning to desist from future acts considered to be grossly inconsistent with the norms of the community.
It could be recalled that similar crisis stemming from issues similar to this had rocked Enugu-ngwo back in 2005 that culminated in the loss of lives and destruction of properties worth hundreds of millions of Naira, necessitating the State government to impose a dawn to dusk curfew in the town.
There has been no official response from the group who has been accused of plotting to terminate the life of the President-General general as press time.
