The Military under the Operational (code name) Joint Task Force has been accused of desecration of worship centres in Ogbomotoro 1&2 communities in the Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.


It was gathered that the military invaded the community on June 26, 2022, where an Egbesu (traditional worship centre) and Glorious Baptist church were desecrated.


The community narrated during a visit by the Congress Metro crew on Tuesday 12, 2022 that there is no issue of militancy and bunkering activities in the community but was surprised to be invaded by military Operatives.
