Delta: Gov Oborevwori Confirms All Residents Have Deserted Okuoma Community

Governor Sheriff Oborevwori stated yesterday that there are no remaining residents in the Okuama community, located in the Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, where Army officers and personnel lost their lives.

Discribing it as an unusual occurrence, he mentioned that he had difficulty getting in touch with any of the local leaders.

The governor was briefed by the military and gave assurance that the situation is being well managed.

The representative of the community in the House of Representatives, Francis Waive, informed his fellow members in the Green Chamber yesterday that his constituents were taking shelter in the forest.

The Governor said, “First and foremost, the community has been deserted.

“So, the issue of whether we’ve been able to see the community leaders, no.

“We’ve only gotten full briefing from the Army and we’re on it because this week the traditional council is going to meet and discuss.

“I’m going to invite stakeholders. We’re on top of it.”

The governor said a security meeting was held on Monday with the heads of security agencies in attendance.

“We’re on the same page to fish out the real culprits because innocent people will not suffer for it.

“They have assured us that no innocent person will be victimised.”
