The President General of Ovwian community in Udu local government area of Delta state, Alfred Urhukpe, has been reportedly killed by unknown assailants in the area.
Emerald News learnt that he was killed at the late hour of Wednesday night, March 24, 2021, by yet to be identified persons.
Though facts about the gruesome murder were sketchy at press time, Acting President of the Committee for the Defense of Human Rights, Comrade Kehinde Taiga, condemned the murder of the community president general.
He said another youth was killed in the community on Tuesday by yet to be identified gunmen in the area.
He attributed the incessant killings to the handiwork of cultists in the state.
He called for full deployment of military men to man the various checkpoints to the community.
Taiga said if there are military personnel at checkpoints in the area, these incessant killings would reduce.
He said the town is too open, adding that leaders of Delta communities also needed to be questioned as to where these youths are coming from and whether they are residents in the community.
According to him, the former president general of Ovwian brought in Bakassi boys to the community, saying this development led to some peace in the area.
Reports say he paid them during their stay.
But after a while, it was learnt that some members of the community complained against the use of Bakassi Boys in the community, hence he sent them away.
This led to an upsurge in cult killings in Owvian area.
However, another version of the report from Udu was that the president general was poisoned by unknown persons in the community.
When contacted for confirmation, Acting Police Public Relations Officer, Edafe Bright, said he was yet to get information from the officers on ground in Udu local government area of Delta State.
