After Tragic Loss, Nigeria Army Withdraw From Okuama Community In Delta

The Nigeria Army has completed its withdrawal from the Okuama Community in Ughelli South Local Government Area of the state following the tragic loss of seventeen of its operatives on March 14th.

Governor Oborevwori made this announcement during a press conference at the Government House in Asaba, the Delta State Capital. He revealed that the decision to withdraw was reached after extensive discussions and cooperation between the Delta State Government and the Military Leadership.

With the military’s departure, the Governor assured the people of Okuama that they can now safely return to their homes and begin the process of rebuilding and reintegrating into their community.

Governor Oborevwori expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), and the Nigerian Army leadership for their understanding and support. He also commended the National Assembly members, distinguished Nigerians, traditional rulers, and other leaders who stood with the state during this challenging time.

Acknowledging the Nigerian Army’s compassion towards the displaced persons, Governor Oborevwori affirmed his administration’s unwavering commitment to enhancing peace and security in the state as outlined in the MORE Agenda.

Furthermore, following an assessment of the community on April 20th, 2024, the state government initiated the establishment of an Internally Displaced Persons camp at Ewu to facilitate their rehabilitation and transition.

The tragic incident on March 14th, which claimed the lives of four military officers and thirteen soldiers, led to the military’s occupation of Okuama Community for seven weeks.
