By Adadareporters

A faction of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, weekend, condemned the massacre of 17 soldiers from the 181 Amphibious Battalion at Okuama in Delta State.

Mazi Ikechukwu Isiguzoro, secretary general of the group, stated this in a statement.

He said, “We are engulfed in a profound mix of grief, anger, and contemplation. The loss of these valiant soldiers, who were on a mission of peace in the Okuama and Okoloba communities in Delta State, is a grievous tragedy that demands urgent justice and remembrance.”

Ohanaeze commiserated with the bereaved families and the Nigerian Army, stating that, “The brutal killings of our soldiers are not just unacceptable, but barbaric, satanic, and cowardly acts that must not be left unpunished. The people of Delta State must rise and ensure that those responsible for this heinous crime are swiftly brought to justice.

“The armed perpetrators and killers must be held accountable and face the full wrath of the law for their despicable actions, which have left a wound in the hearts of many that can never fully heal.”

Ohanaeze pledged to immortalise the fallen heroes during the forthcoming 2024 Igbo Easter Retreat in Asaba, Delta State capital.

The pan-Igbo group also said it would honour President Bola Tinubu during the retreat, and advised the oppositions to support the president to move Nigeria forward.

According to the release, “We stand firm in our conviction to honor President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the retreat, as a gesture of solidarity and support for his leadership in these challenging times. We urge political figures like Peter Obi, Atiku Abubakar, and Rabiu Kwankwaso to set aside their conflicts and join hands to assist Tinubu in tackling the economic and security crises plaguing our nation.”
