Delta killings: Three suspects are detained and taken to the Army Headquarters in Asaba.

Three of the suspects who killed seventeen officers and men from the Nigerian Army’s 181 Amphibious Battalion in Otuama, Delta State, last Thursday have been taken into custody. This occurred after Senate President Godswill Akpabio declared on Tuesday that those accountable for the military personnel’s deaths will face consequences. Speaking on the same day that Sheriff Oborevwori, the governor of Delta State, briefed President Bola Tinubu on the situation at Aso Rock, Akpabio stated that the state is handling the tension brought on by the killing and that there won’t be any more attacks.


Senator Akpabio’s statement comes amidst the ongoing investigation into the killings of military men, which the House of Representatives has mandated the Armed Forces of Nigeria to conduct. The debate on the killings was initiated by Senators Abdulaziz Yar’Adua and Ede Dafinone, both of whom expressed their concerns over the tragic event. Senator Akpabio, however, contradicted their sentiments by stating that he does not believe the perpetrators are from the Niger Delta region. This differing opinion highlights the complexity and sensitivity of the situation and the need for a thorough investigation.

these communities, it would be a waste of resources and a missed opportunity to bring the real perpetrators to justice. We must investigate thoroughly and gather evidence to identify the true culprits, whether they are mercenaries from outside the Niger Delta or from other countries. We must also consider the possibility that the attack was carried out by someone with a personal vendetta, rather than a representative of the community as a whole. It is important to approach this situation with caution and avoid making assumptions. Only by conducting a thorough investigation can we ensure that justice is served and prevent future incidents from occurring.

This decision was met with widespread criticism as many believe that withholding relief materials from those in need goes against the fundamental principles of humanitarian aid. Some argue that it is not fair to punish innocent civilians for the actions of a few individuals. Furthermore, the investigation into the killing of soldiers should be carried out separately from the distribution of relief materials to ensure that justice is served and assistance is provided to those in need without discrimination.
