Killing Of Soldiers In Delta: Mulade Frowns, Sympathises With Nigerian Army, Bereaved Families




By Miracle Esegha

Niger Delta peace and development advocate, Comrade Mulade Sheriff, has condemned in its entirety the heinous and barbaric killing of soldiers who were reportedly on a peace mission to restore law and order in Okuama community in Ughelli South Local Government Area over dispute with its neighbour, Okoloba community.

The leading peace and environmental rights activist condoled with the Nigerian Army over the unprovoked killing and appealed to the feuding Okuama and Okoloba communities to sheath their sword, while calling on the Military high command and Delta state government to institute an enquiry and bring to book perpetrators of this dastardly act.

Addressing the press in Abuja, Mulade urged the warring groups to embrace peace for the sake of development and growth of Okuama/Okoloba communities, who, had the identity of the same descendants of the original root. He further advised and appealed to them not to fall into the hands of war mongers/instigators, whose primary occupation and means of survival relied on communal/ethnic crisis, thereby positioning themselves as negotiators/leaders.

The Ijaw leader, once again, appealed strongly to Okuama and Okoloba communities who are brothers and sisters, with long history of inter-marriages, to sheath their sword and allow peace to reign.

His words, “It is worthy of note that Sheriff Oborevwori, the executive governor of Delta State, needs peace to attract investors to grow the economy of Delta State, and create employment opportunities for our teeming youths.
