Group Condemned Soldiers Over Destruction Of Houses In Rivers

The IJAW People’s Development Initiative (IPDI), in Warri, Delta State, yesterday, faulted the reported invasion and burning of 15 houses at Touma community, Bille Kingdom, Rivers State, by soldiers hunting for suspected criminals that killed a military officer and two other persons at a military checkpoint in the kingdom.

The group, in a statement by the acting Spokesperson, Mayor Ogobiri, said: “We want to state that invading and burning of the communi-ties over an attack, which the people knew nothing about is scandalous and criminal and, as such, the military men involved should not go unpunished.

“We condemn this attack, maltreatment of innocent civilians and destruction of property. We call on the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to be wary of the consequences of attacking and burning innocent communities in Niger Delta and, therefore, withdraw the military currently causing turmoil in Rivers communities in the interest of peace.”
