Atiku condemns killing of 15 soilders in Delta

Presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general election, Atiku Abubakar has asked for the arrest of culprits that perpetrated the killing of 15 soldiers at Okuama in the Ughelli South Local Government Area and Okolaba in the Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State. 

Channels Television reported on Saturday that 15 bodies of the soldiers were recovered by soldiers of the Joint Task Force at the Okuama community.

Atiku on his X handle on Sunday while condemning the killing said there can never be a justification for a premeditated killing of soldiers on a legitimate assignment.

His words,  “The brutal killing of over a dozen Nigerian soldiers in Okuama in the Ughelli South Local Government Area and Okolaba in the Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State stands condemned.

"There can never be a justification for a premeditated killing of soldiers on a legitimate assignment.

Even as we grieve the loss of these soldiers, who are not only Nigerians but have families and dependants, I urge restraints by the military authorities in its response.

“I would recommend that the culprits be arrested and prosecuted,” he posted.
