Between Okuama and Okoloba communities in Delta State: A Cause for Justice.

The sad news of the peace-keeping officers and soldiers that were reportedly ambushed and killed by some youths in Delta State while on peace-keeping mission is heart breaking and condemnable.

I sympathise with the Nigerian Army and the family members of the gallant officers and soldiers who were killed in this unfortunate incident.

Nevertheless, the reprisal attacks that followed was equally shocking and condemnable. The entire communities in the crisis area where the suspected killers of the officers and soldiers appeared to have launched their attacks were reportedly razed down by the military.

I sympathise with the communities and the entire Delta State for this tragic event and the monumental loss of lives and property.

I vehemently condemn the reprisal attacks and urge the Nigerian government to act with great speed to track down the perpetrators of this crime and bring them to justice.

There is urgent need by all the stakeholders to find truce and the lasting solution to the crisis. It is expedient to enjoin the state actors and non-state actors as well to observe the rule of law and explore the available legal remedies to settle their disputes.
