A mother of triplet who was a fashion designer before the recent Ukelele/Igbeagu inter boundary crisis robbed her source of livelihood, Mrs. Faith Nwagu seeks financial assistance to save her from possible breast cancer.

The Ukelle of Yala LGA, Cross River State and Igbeagu community, Izzi LGA Ebonyi State had been faced with inter boundary war that claimed many lives, property worth billions destroyed, markets and schools closed down.

Citizens’ Advocate reporter who visited the mother of the triplet learnt that the family was badly affected by the crisis as they lost their home which was razed down by Ukelle war lords and has been taken as one of the refugees at IDPs camp in Ndiebor Oferekpe Igbeagu,Izzi where these children were delivered.

The mother of the children told us that she delivered peacefully but the blessing of the children which supposed to bring joy to them tripled their hardship, coupled with the breasts’ pain which according to her, she feared what may be behind the pain.

She explained that she had visited various hospitals including Alex Ekwueme Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, where she was given drugs but her condition worsened since their situation is so pathetic that they were unable to raise money for a laboratory test.

She further said that due to their financial situation, she had resorted to herbs which has not improved her health.
Speaking with Mr. Nwagu Cosmas, father of the triplet, he narrated to us how he lost his provision shop to the crisis and now survives through a menial job as he works as an apprentice at a carpentry workshop.


Citizens’ Advocate gathered that the family has been surviving through handouts from relatives who were also affected by the crisis and well-wishers because they were unable to save nothing from their house.

The village head, Ndiebor Oferekpe, Mr. Stephen Akpagu urged the State government, Corporate organizations, NGOs, and good spirited individuals to come to the rescue of the children as the family was unable to save even a piece of cloth when their home was razed.

He appealed to National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and Ebonyi State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to come to the aid of those affected by the communal crisis as many are living without zinc to cover their roof as they have been directed to return back to their homes as a measure for the peace moves of both stakeholders of the two states.
