Non-indigenous Deltans accuse Okowa of not protecting them
Non-indigenous residents in Delta State have accused Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of supporting cultists and agitators that led to the killing of four innocent persons at the popular Abraka market, Asaba. Two notorious cultists have been arrested for the killing.
Non-indigenous stated this through Alhaji Imar at meeting between the state police management team and leadership of non-indigenous and other stakeholder in the state over the unfortunate incident that occurred last Friday night.
Mr. Imar said that Governor Okowa was also supporting Indigenous People of Biafra that was he felt unconcern over the killing.
“Former Governors James Ibori and Emmanuel Uduaghan have been protecting non-indigenes since 2006, but this Okowa led government has not shown any commitment to protecting their lives and properties. I will advise him (Okowa) to learn from Ibori and Uuaghan”.
He further noted that Okowa also refused to visit the scene of incident or send one of the government officials saying that lost of four innocent persons was not a joke.
But Commissioner of police, Mr Zanna Ibrahim swiftly refuted the claim saying that Governor Okowa was sad over the murder of four people and he sent his Adviser on Security matters, Chief Casidy Iloba to the market immediately.
According to CP, “it is not a happy moment, lost of one person is a lost of everybody, I appreciate your peaceful conduct since the ugly incident took place”.
Mr. Zanna told them that the third person, Osita Nasarawa has been arrested and after thorough investigations, the papertractors would be brought to book.
Commissioner of Police further assured non-indigenes of adequate protection of their lives, properties, right, freedom and businesses in the state while urging them to about their normal duties.
“As I have said, investigation has commenced on the incident with a view to finding out the motive behind the shooting and the possible involvement of other conspirators in the unwarranted shooting and wounding of innocent persons.
