A Delta based lawyer and development expert Chief Robinson Ariyo has accused the Deputy Senate President of Nigeria, DSP, Ovie Omo-Agege for encouraging ethnic disunity among the various ethnic groups in Warri and its environs with utterances capable of igniting violence in the area and Delta state at large.

The legal practitioner, Ariyo, a Chief from the Palace of the Olu of Warri in an electronic text made available to the press Thursday December 2, 2021, said DSP Omo-Agege, who is a public servant occupying position in which he’s being paid with tax payers money, adding it behoves on him and his aide, Otive Igbuzor to keep their public expression of ethnic bigotry in their closets and not exhibit it openly as they had recklessly done in the the past few days.

Chief Ariyo described their actions as terribly bad example and a violent disrespect for public office; especially for a team aspiring to be in power in such a Multi Ethnic State as Delta in 2023, at a time when the people are in dire need of a viable but certainly not a more terrible alternative.

He maintained that in 2023 Deltans won’t support conflict generators, ethnic bigots to be elected as governor as the group is currently exhibiting their position earlier for Deltans at the moment, advising all who mean well for the state to shun such group of people clustering around them.

The Warri based legal luminary called on President Buhari to urgently call the Senator representing Delta Central and Deputy Senate President to order in order to avert another ethnic conflict they are preparing in Warri and its environs as early as possible.

Chief Ariyo also want President Buhari to caution the utterance of the aides of the DSP Omo-Agege , Igbuzor others which is capable of causing ethnic violence as they are beating the ember of ethnic bigotry in the area that had been relatively calm and peaceful.

The Delta based legal icon, who is also a Philosophy student, expressed his concern, noting thus in his electronic statement: “For one, we have two educated people; one a lawyer and the other a development practitioner. What more does one ask from exposure than such trainings?

“It would therefore be ironical if notwithstanding, such heights of human capacity building, the cancer of ethnic bigotry can yet have the better of us and position us as major sponsors of disunity, possible unrest and ethnic conflict in our own state; while we are paid to do the exact opposite.

“Let us view civilisation for what it is; the act of living peacefully together in a large group! Remember your contribution when the soup you are cooking now is done and ready for consumption. I will remind you if you forget.

“The consequence of radicalization is what we see today in Boko haram; easy to begin but difficult to manage. May the consequence of any unrest we nurture and sustain hit us first before any other person, amen”. He stated.
