What do you think the Nigeria Government can do to stop this new freedom fighters from crippling the economy ?
Meanwhile, soldiers invaded Oporoza, the traditional headquarters
of Gbaramatu kingdom, at about 1.52 am, this morning and were
still laying siege to the community as at 8.00 am.
The soldiers, who came in no fewer than seven gunboats, allegedly
beat up residents, including an octogenarian community leader,
Chief Atiti Mala, with the butt of a gun.
“They were asking the helpless villagers to produce former
militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, and
members of the Niger Delta Avengers,” a youth leader told
Vanguard on phone.
Ijaw leader, Chief Godspower Gbenekama, who confirmed the
attack on Oporoza, said: “Information available to me is that the
military invaded Oporoza again in the early hours of today. As I am
speaking to you, they are still there molesting people.”
“They have arrested many persons and villagers have fled into the
bush, this is wrong, they are going to worsen issues with what
they are doing. I posted on Facebook that they invaded Oporoza
and a military called me to tell me that they would deal with me.
“We are not safe, we have said it over and over that Gbaramatu
people are not synonymous with Niger Delta Avengers, they
should leave my people alone. If they want to kill me, let them go
ahead, but I will continue to say the truth, why are they harassing
my people, they should harass the militants whose activities we
condemn,” he added.
