Be decisive in ending Aladja/Ogbe-Ijoh crisis – House of Reps hopeful tells Gov. Okowa


House of Representatives hopeful for Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu Federal Constituency, Comrade Akpokona Omafuaire has called on the Delta State Government to be decisive in ending the bloody and lingering crisis between Aladja and Ogbe-Ijoh communities in Udu and Warri South-West Local Government Areas.

Omafuaire made the call following renewed hostility which led to several injured persons on both sides.

“The government has made efforts at resolving this crisis. The government must become decisive now to end this unnecessary blood letting.

“The report of the committee must be signed to law. The government must stand tall now and take action because enough is enough.”

Omafuaire appealed to the warring communities to embrace peace as the killings have not done anyone good but pains and unwarranted deaths.

The aspirant also called on the State House of Assembly to look into the matter and make a law that will help to resolve the crisis and forestall future occurrences.
