Leadership management is an age old phenomenal concept that explains the well-being of a people or groups. It is associated with functions of management, (Daft, 2005; Ponder, 2005), which resonates aspects of and the need for achieving and consistently delivering goals and objectives of the followers, effectively and efficiently. With diverse leadership management agenda that are not always known to any but the leadership managers themselves (Ponder, 2005) are executed on Obagi and Ogba people in Niger Delta, Nigeria. In this paper, Laish or the impoverished (Ahiamadu, 2016) is used to represent Obagi, Ogba or the suffering and unsuspecting people. Thus, this paper goes several steps further to examine how leadership managers and followership attitude, behavior and cultural mind-set have contributed to present day sufferings of the “peaceful and unsuspecting”. Applying several perspectives from diverse scholars and other sources, this paper therefore, used methodological theory of frustration-aggression, motivational and Ohio State theories to investigate a complex and multi-dimensional cultural attitude and behavior analysis contexts. Also, dissatisfaction, oppression, human rights deprivation and sufferings are tied to the leadership-followership attitude, behavior, cultural mind-set and incompetence themes. Serious human rights breaches have stripped these peaceful and unsuspecting people their God-given rights and almost decimated them through subtle execution of gradual genocidal series. As in many comments from public opinion forum world-wide, the interest in Nigeria and especially in the Niger Delta was motivated by the latifundia-like (ownership of extensive land) attitude and behavior of both the leadership and followership (Ahiamadu, 2016). Its findings depict phenomenal leadership and followership attitudes, behaviors and cultural mind-set that have led to stealthy genocide and serious leadership incompetency. The implications encompass security threats, serious human right issues and impoverishment of the peaceful and unsuspecting people of Obagi and Ogba..


Key words: Leadership, Management, Followership, Culture, Obagi, Niger Delta, Economy, Environment, Sustainable Growth, Development.
