UPU Canada Raises Concern Over Alleged Violence and Destruction in Okuama Community by Soldiers

The Urhobo Progress Union of Canada expresses its deep concern over the reported acts of violence and destruction in the Okuama community, situated within the Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria.

A statement released by Chief Joseph Avwarute, President of UPU Canada, and conveyed by Evelyn Obos, the Union’s P.R.O., highlights the need for a thorough investigation into the tragic events allegedly involving the Nigerian military. These events have resulted in loss of lives and damage to property within the community, raising serious questions about the role and conduct of the armed forces.

UPU Canada emphasizes the importance of accountability and transparency in the aftermath of the turmoil in Okuama. The organization calls for prompt action to initiate dialogue between conflicting parties and to address concerns regarding the military’s involvement in civil disputes.

Furthermore, UPU Canada urges authorities to investigate the circumstances surrounding the discovery of victims’ bodies in locations far from the incident sites. Such discrepancies fuel suspicions of underlying motives and demand a comprehensive examination to ensure justice for all affected parties.

The loss of lives and destruction in Okuama is a tragic reminder of the need for peaceful resolution of conflicts and the protection of human rights. UPU Canada stands in solidarity with the affected community and calls for swift action to prevent further violence and ensure accountability for those responsible.
