An ex-militant leader and Head of the National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators, NCNDE-A, Eshanekpe Israel, a.k.a Akpodoro has been elected the Mayor of Urhoboland by Gbaregolor Federated Communities led by Chief Edemini Epiagbaga the Okpako-Orere of the Gbaregolor Federation.

This was made known by the Okpako Orere-in-Council during a well-attended event in the ancient community of Gberegolor, Ughelli South Local Government Area of the oil-rich Delta State, South-South Nigeria.

In his address during the ceremony with the President-Generals of seven other communities in attendance, the Okapko Orere reeled out the achievements of the former warrior to include his dedication to the growth and development of Urhobo land in particular and Nigeria in general noting that His Excellency,  Akpodoro brought pride to Urhobo nation, particularly during the disarmament of reluctant militants who weren’t willing to disengage from militancy at the dawn of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, in the Niger Delta region.

Chief Epiagbaga noted that Akpodoro was he who in conjunction with the Nigerian armed forces averted what would have been a bloody war in the Niger Delta during the renewed insurgency in the region in 2016. He said the new Mayor of Urhobo Land was he who tamed rather than supported the Avengers in their onslaught against the economic wellbeing of the nation.
