A man drives a motobike along a road past a sign that reads: 'Welcome to Rumuekpe, The Land of Peace. Drop your Weapons'.
The Rumuekpe community suffered much damage during the conflict among various rival militants and cult gangs over access to oil money. The inter-communal violence killed many people, including women and children, between 2005-08. Thousands more were displaced by fighting that left homes, schools and churches in ruins with many suffering poverty and homelessness.
