We have been victims to series of attack from the people of Aladja, after the undertaking of the peace accord, the people of Aladja had inflicted countless pains on us. First it was Mr Ogofugha Tailor who was murdered on a broad daylight in front of his own house behind the council Secretariat while maintaining his surrounding, the security agencies and the leadership of Aladja community promised to fetch out the perpetrators yet nothing was done, road users both Ogbe-Ijoh indigenes and other individuals who are workers had been harassed and humiliated, and a number of houses were burnt behind the council Secretariat yet we did not retaliate for the sake of peace, now they’ve killed another person (Pastor Sylvester Yerinbide).
The state government and all the security agencies should henceforth know it that, we the youths of Ogbe-Ijoh wWarri Kingdom are not comfortable with their style of handling the issue between Aladja and Ogbe-ijoh.
We have been pushed to the wall and we have no option than to do the needful, we are not weaklings and will never be.
Therefore, we the entire youths of Ogbe-Ijoh wWarri kingdom is giving the state government, all security agencies and the leadership of Aladja community 14 days ultimatum starting from 6th Nov, 2021 to provide the killers of Pastor Sylvester Yerinbide else we will avenge his death.
