Okuama Killings: Army whisks away Delta monarch to Abuja


The Nigerian Army has reportedly flown to Abuja the Ovie of Ewu kingdom in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, Clement Ikolo, in connection with the killing of 17 Nigerian Army Officers and Soldiers.

BAR & BENCH WATCH reports that the monarch was one of the eight persons declared wanted by the Defence Headquarters over the killings.

But the Ovie did not allow minions of the law to smoke him out before he surrendered himself to the Delta State Police Command in Asaba on Thursday.

He was thereafter flown to Abuja.

According to reports, the Commanding Officer, 63 Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Asaba, the Delta State Police Commissioner and other senior military officers escorted the monarch to the Asaba International Airport for the flight to Abuja.

It was also learnt that Ikolo was boarded in an Air Peace flight that departed Asaba International Airport at about 9:10am to Abuja.
