The governor said the forward is to give succour to the families of the officers and soldiers killed and give them a befitting burial.

He said the same gesture will be extended to the Okuama community in the Ughelli South local government area of Delta state.

“The issue of whether a place has been burnt down or people have been killed, has happened, but what is the way forward? The ways forward are two ways.
“The people that have been killed—the officers and soldiers—we must see how we can find succour for their families and give them a befitting burial, as well as the community.
“Anything that has happened in the community in the past will not happen again. We assure you that the people who are culpable will be brought to book.
