Delta Is Tensed As Vigilante Is Accused Of Killing A Youth

There is palpable tension in the Okpe Local Government Area of Delta State’s Ughoton Community following reports that vigilante operatives there killed an unnamed Ijaw boy.
According to sources, the bloody incident took place in Ughoton on Saturday when men acting as community vigilantes allegedly shot and killed an Ijaw kid.
According to reports, the suspected Ijaw youngster was slain when he refused to “settle” with the vigilantes at Ughoton Community after being caught with crude oil goods that were allegedly diverted illegally from a pipeline via Ughoton while en route to the upland for delivery.
The Ughoton vigilante chairman reportedly mobilised to go the neighbouring Ijaw community and killed the man, whose wife was said to have just given birth to a baby, one of the sources claimed.
It was further gathered that some angry youths in the said Ijaw community, who were infuriated by the murder of one of their own, embalmed the corpse of the deceased, and took it to the home of the father of the chairman of Ughoton Community vigilante.

Consequently, some residents of Ughoton were said to have resorted to fleeing the community following speculations that aggrieved youths from the Ijaw settlement, “were gearing up for war.”
The Police Public Relations Officer for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, could not be reached for comments on the incident as of the time of filing this report.
