The Delta State command  has urged the leaders of Aladja Community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State to fish out the killers of the man who was shot dead on Tuesday at Ogbe-Ijoh Community.

Commissioner of Police,CP Adeyinka Adeleke gave the directive in a telephone chat with Our Correspondent in Warri.


He said,”I have asked the leaders of the Communities to immediately fetch out the youths who killed somebody in Ogbe-Ijoh yesterday.”


CP Adeleke noted that the police would not want the crisis between Aladja and Ogbe-Ijoh Communities to be escalated hence, the culprits must be arrested.


When contacted, the President of Aladja Community Council, Elder Otto Ogbiruveta condemned the acts in a telephone chat with Our Correspondent just as he vowed that the two Communities will hunt the hoodlums who carried out the dastard acts and ensure that justice is done.


Elder Ogbiruveta said,”The two Communities have agreed that the hoodlums will be fetched out and prosecuted.”


He said they(Communities) have just finished from a peaceful meeting with the Nigerian Army, Department of State Security,DSS and the Police noting that they’re looking forward to bringing the age long crisis to an end.


In a swift reaction, the Chairman of Ijaw Youth Council, IYC in Ogbe-Ijoh Community, Comrade (Engr.)Smart Okosun the peaceful meeting was a “scam”.


” That meeting that they’re talking about, I am not aware of it. No Ogbe-Ijoh youths was aware of it. How do you kill our person and be asking for a peaceful meeting? They should first agreed that they killed our person.”


Okosun said there was no meeting wherein Ogbe-Ijoh Community agreed with their Aladja counterparts to fetch out killers.


Okosun who accused the Aladja people of killing an Ogbe-Ijoh indigene said,” Aladja people should go and fish out the killers by themselves”.


When Our Correspondent visited Aladja Community on Wednesday morning, some indigenes who craved anonymity blamed Aladja youths for killing the Ogbe-Ijoh indigene.

At the time of filing this report, some youths have eloped from Aladja Community for fear of not being arrested by Security Operatives over the recent killing.
