The community had, at a press briefing in Awka, listed six grievances which include a demand for public apology from the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, and his Anambra command commissioner, Usman Gwary, “for publicly denigrading their monarch, HRH Igwe Prof Laz Ekwueme. They also ask President Jonathan “to caution the Police to stop taking sides in the crises and to focus on their constitutionally assigned mediating and peacekeeping responsibility”.

The community also want the Police high command to “face its constitutionally assigned duty and responsibility and effect immediate arrest and prosecution of those involved in the arson and destruction of property in Oko, and attempted murder of HRH Prof Laz Ekwueme and his wife, Prof Lucy Ekwueme.

In the briefing addressed by the President General of Oko Peoples Union, Mr Cyprian Nwanmuo, the community accused the Anambra-born businessman, Mr Emeka Offor of tacitly fueling the crises.
