The Omega Power Ministries (OPM) has reopened its farm located in Rivers for repentant militants going through reintegration process at the Church rehabilitation centre in Port Harcourt, Rivers.
General Overseer of the church, Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere, stated that the farm produce would be used to feed the repentant militants and their family members.
Chinyere also said that the move was to make the repentant militants as well as repentant commercial sex workers to be self-reliant as far as food production was concerned.
He said that the farm land which occupied about 150 plots would be used for the cultivation of tomatoes, yam, onions and so on.
He also said that no fewer than 500 ex-militants and ex-kidnappers would benefit from the project.
“We have already acquired modern farm implements for this project which started in early 2020 when COVID-19 led to the shutting down of churches and other activities and as such funds were not coming as expected.
“So, we created this as an alternative source of income to help sustain the OPM rehabilitation centre.
“In fact, the okro I eat is from the farm. The harvests are bountiful, so they bring some for me to cook and they sell the rest; bananas, vegetables are among what they harvest.
“They also bring eggs to me because they also do poultry farming, especially chickens,” Chinyere said.
