Okuama: Activist Cautions Against Politicising Probe Into Killings

A peace and development advocate, Comrade Mulade Sheriff, has urged the federal government to ensure the  independent investigation into the killing of 17 military officers at Okuama community in Ughelli South local government area of Delta State is done without political interference at any level.

Sheriff, who is also United Nations Peace ambassador, said it is imperative that the President Bola Tinubu-led administration  back his words with action to assure Nigerians and also to encourage security personnel saddled with the responsibility of safeguarding the nation irrespective of political, ethnic and religious affiliation.

“We cannot allow our gallant officers to be killed in this heinous, barbaric, and wicked manner,” he cautioned.

The Delta State born activist said the investigative panel that is to be instituted should be ” honest, dedicated, and  committed to unravel the perpetrators of this dastardly act, and ensure that no stone is left unturned, to avoid reoccurrence of such ugly incidents in our dear nation, his candid advice.


“We demand justice for the dead whose souls are angry”, he asserted.


Sheriff charged Nigerians to encourage and support security agencies to enable them to deliver on their national assignment as security is a collective responsibility, stressing that “if we must enjoy quality and robust security in Nigeria, all hands must be on deck.”


He called on all Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic, religious, and political divide, to support and assist President Tinubu in the fight against insecurity in Nigeria because it has no boundaries.


“I want to strongly appeal and call on the Governor of Delta State, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, Traditional rulers, and all stakeholders to ensure that Delta State is safe for tourists and investors to create job opportunities for our teeming youths. Therefore, all hands must be on deck to stop this ugly image of national embarrassment,” he said.
