They further reiterated that the court lack jurisdiction in this matter historically. It is established that the Igala, Ebira and Ebira Koto all moved from kwararafa to Idah before Ebira and Ebira Koto disperses to their current places. If the Ebira’s are not claiming share ownership of Idah even if it is right for them, then it will be a trespass in this 21st century for the Igala’s to claim ownership of Lokoja, Ajaokuta and KotonKarfe

In line with the statement of the Governor, Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Ohimege of KotoonKarfe, Maigari of Lokoja, Ohi of Eganyi and other Traditional Rulers of the said land, the citizens of the land were called to be calm as legal action shall be taken with respect for rule of law and Judicial proceedings to raclaim our land.
