Delta youths condemn Ogbe-Ijoh, Aladja killings, call for peace

A group of youths in Delta State under the aegis of Delta Youth Assembly (DYA) has condemned the on-going communal clashes between Aladja in Udu Local Government and Ogbe-Ijoh in Warri South West Local Government areas of the state.

Reacting to the clashes that had left about five people dead, National Publicity Secretary of DYA, Comrade Ezekiel Enejeta, while speaking to newsmen, on Friday, condemned the killings describing it as ‘crude, mundane and uncivilised way of conflict resolution in today’s world’.

National President of Delta Youth Assembly, Comrade Gilor Kelly, while reacting to the ugly incident, lamented that Ogbe-Ijoh and Aladja communities reverted to violence barely 24 hours after promising Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to sheathe their swords during the meeting last Wednesday with security chiefs and community leaders from Gbaramatu and Ogbe-Ijoh kingdoms, as well as those of Aladja community in Udu council.

“Governor Okowa should find lasting solution to the crisis between the two communities and also appeal to the security agencies to be professional and bring lasting solution to the two communities”

“There can be no meaningful development without peace, the people of Ogbe-Ijoh and Aladja will have to embrace peace for posterity; the governor has played a role when he came to your communities for mediation, let us build on that dialogue”, Comrade Kelly said.

The group called on the youths of the communities to lead the dialogue and make peace, stressing that taking up arms has proven to be detrimental to the development and progress of any community.

The youths also called on security agents to stay neutral and professional in resolving the crises. As a crisis, it is not between Navy and any community. There is no point for the Navy and other law enforcement agencies to take side.
