Okuama Massacre: Ijaw Monarch Raises alarm over Villager’s Oppression, Illegal Torture by Army

  • HRH Alagodei exposes vendetta-driven goals of faceless criminally colluding perpetrators with plans to replace legitimate chiefs for sinister yes-men who will run the affairs of the oil rich communities

His Royal Highness Goodluck Alagodei, the acting traditional ruler of Igbomotoru 1 community, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area, has gone public, exposing the Nigerian army’s illegal harassment and torture of helpless returning natives of the community who fled their villages owing to escalated tensions that claimed the lives of both innocent villagers and men of the Nigerian army in Okuama village

HRH Alagodei who was making an appeal to Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri for support to prevent a total breakdown of law and order, allegedly fingered an unnamed ex monarch, anti-oil theft security operatives and faceless men of the Nigerian army, as colluding hands behind the current crises bedevilling the region

Alagodei said: “I make this distress call to Governor Douye Diri following attacks on innocent people who have been displaced and returning home from hideouts since the military invasion of Igbomotoru community on 17th March, 2024, relying on the governor’s call to return home.

“The former king is working hands in gloves with operatives of the security surveillance company to thwart the good intentions of Governor Diri to ensure peace in Igbomotoru as demonstrated in his recent visit to the community.

“The perpetrators are currently ransacking the community, dragging out people, flogging them and arresting innocent people on trumped up charges. Thereafter, they hand them over to soldiers for torture.

“The situation has heightened tension in the community.”

The monarch called on the sitting governor to step in and protect the innocent villagers who are regrettable casualties of complexities they are ignorant of.

Okuama villagers and seventeen officers were killed in Okuama community on March 14, 2024 in a yet to be unravelled circumstances that the Nigerian public are still in the dark about.
