Diri Condemns Killing Of Soldiers, Says Act Is Satanic

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, has described the killing of the 17 military personnel in Okuama community in Delta State as barbaric and satanic.

The governor, through his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, strongly condemned the killings and expressed his deep condolences and that of the Bayelsa state government to the families of the slain military personnel, the wider Armed Forces family and the army in particular.

He said no effort should be spared to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to book for their heinous crime. He noted that being a proud host to the headquarters of the joint task force, Operation Delta Safe (OPDS), the Central Naval Command, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Mobility Command and the Nigerian Army 16 Brigade, Bayelsans are understandably outraged at the heinous attack on the military personnel that are cherished members of the communities they are located and the state.

Diri said the government would continue to support the military and other law enforcement institutions in their mission in the state.

The governor consequently directed all the security commanders in the state as well as the coordinator of the Bayelsa Community Safety Corps, Brig-General Eric Angaye (retd), to scale up surveillance and patrol of the state’s borders and the waterways.
