Tragedy: Baptist Church seeks end to the military invasion in Iduoda community (Exclusive)



Following the constant invasion and killing of innocent citizens in the Iduoda community in Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State, the resident pastor of the Baptist Church in the community, Rev V.C.I Amadi has cried to the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike and the military authorities to end persistent invasions in the community.

The resident pastor who spoke to Congress correspondents during a visit to the community said he had witnessed several unprovoked invasions in the community.

While lamenting the spate of destruction carried out by the military, he stated that he had spent close to four years in the community.

When asked why he had not fled the community, the clergyman said he decided not to run because it was his duty to intercede on behalf of the community.

When our metro correspondents visited the Church, there was no worshiper found in the church.

According to Amadi, several members of the church had fled the community as a result of the repeated military invasions.

He called on the government and relevant agencies to do the needful to curb this ugly menace.

The Baptist pastor corroborated that the bunkering site was not situated inside the community but sited in a neighbouring community.

He appealed to the government authorities to probe individuals behind the repeated attacks and bring to book anyone found wanting.

Amadi also insisted that the federal government and its military should rebuild burnt houses in the community and provide adequate security to secure lives and properties in the community.
