Okuama massacre

Leaders of Okoloba community in Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State, on Tuesday, intercepted a local engine boat loaded with looted materials on River Forcados.

The materials were allegedly bought from the razed Okuama community in Ughelli South Local Government Area.

Chairman of Okoloba community, Mr Clement Koki, who led his community folk to intercept the boat said they waited patiently after receiving information about the planned deal.

He said, “We got information earlier in the day that Okuama people were planning to sell properties in their community.

“As at about 10:00 pm, a big local engine boat coming from the Okuagbe community axis in Ughelli South Local Government Area passed through our community to the direction of Okuama. We prepared and waited patiently for its return.”
