Produce killers of military men – Accord charges Okuama community leaders

The Accord party has vehemently condemned the gruesome killing of 16 soldiers on a peacekeeping mission in Okuama community, Delta State.

The gruesome murder of the soldiers in Okuama community last Thursday by armed gangs during a rescue mission in a clash between Okuama and Okoloba communities in the state.

Accord described the incident as an atrocious act that challenges Nigeria’s shared humanity, especially as these brave soldiers were striving to avert conflict.

In a statement signed by Barrister Maxwell Mgbudem, its National Chairman, Accord called on the authorities to swiftly bring the perpetrators to justice, urging community leaders to aid their apprehension.

The party noted that the state of the nation is worrisome and calls for patriotism to redirect the ship of the country for total overhaul of the security architecture.

“The tasks of rebuilding the nation is the responsibility of the populace irrespective of political affiliations. We should reaffirm our faith in the fatherland and rededicate ourselves to the service of the nation,” the statement added.

It further demanded better security measures and support for the armed forces, saying “Let this tragedy be a rallying cry for all citizens to prioritize safety and root out threats to our nation.

“Our hearts ache for the families, the Nigerian Army, and comrades of the fallen soldiers. Our thoughts are with the families of the fallen heroes. May their brave souls find eternal peace.”
