Commissioner of Police Delta state, Mr. Adeyinka Adeleke has threatened to deal ruthless with seapirates and cultists who cause insecurity in Delta waters in Burutu, Bomadi and other riverine areas in the state.



The Police boss disclosed in a an exclusive phone interview with Daily Watch in Warri, said ‘‘,”We will deal with seapirates and cultists in Bomadi and Burutu who terrorize the waterways. We are trying to stern that assault by the bandits on the people of that area. You know it is not easy on water. I learnt that they(bandits) want easy access of but the villagers won’t allow them.”


The Burutu Council Chairman, Hon. Godknows Angele also confirmed the report.


He said,”I had a call over the development from Ekogbene where seapirates have laid siege in the Communities particularly Ekogbene, Egrangbene, Ndoro and other Communities.


“I will send a delegation to Ekogbene to assess the level of damage caused by the bombing of the Community Chairman’s residence over the Community’s resistanc evil.”





Seapirates have laid siege in over eight Delta Communities in Burutu and Bomadi Local Government Areas.


The Community that are under siege are, Egragbene, Ikogbene, Orugbene, Abediama, Ekumugbene, Ebieregbene, Kalafiogbene and Agoro-Delta Communities.


Others include Ogriagbene, Enekorogha, Ndoro and other Communities within the Ramos River.


Commercial activities including farming have been grounded completely in the areas.


The seapirates  allegedly raped women, kidnapped, kill and robbed the villagers in the Communities under siege at gunpoints.


The seapirates also on Monday night bombed the house of the Chairman of Egragbene Community with dynamite.


The Chairman and members of his family were lucky to be away from home at the time the incident occurred.



The activities of the seapirates who patrol the creeks of Egragbene through the Ramos river on daily basis have caused serious tension within the area.


Meanwhile, the Concerned Citizens of of the Communities confirmed the report.


The Concerned Citizens who spoke with newsmen said,”commercial within the areas have been locked down following the activities of the seapirates.


“As we speak to you now, no commercial boats, no fishing activities, no farming or tapping as all the people are afraid of being kidnapped or killed or the women being raped by the Seapirates.


“We have made several attempts to the Government through the Local Government Area Chairmen to the State and appeal to the Joint TaskForce, JTF, Army, Navy to come to our rescue but to no avail as we speak.


” We are seriously appealing to the Government and particularly the Military to hear our cry as we are being maimed. Our women raped, properties stolen on gunpoints and loss of lives recorded in those areas.


“The delay of Government to reach us with the request has made life extremely difficult for the people.


” These hoodlums patrol on daily basis in the creeks of Egragbene and through the Ramos river. Except the law enforcement come to our aid, our present and future living in those areas is doomed.


“We believe the Government of the day under the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari is capable of curtailing these highly trained and unscrupulous gunmen in the once peaceful Ramos River and its environs in the Niger Delta area particularly in Burutu and Bomadi Local Government Areas. So, we appeal”.
