Reps member charges IGP to wade into Delta communal crisis

Former House Minority Leader Leo Ogor has asked Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu to delve into the communal crisis between the communities of Ozoro and Oleh de Delta and take those behind to book .

Ogor, who represents the Isoko federal constituency of Delta state in the House, made the call in an interview with journalists, in Abuja.

The legislator dismissed the accusation that he bought the weapons used in the conflict as false, stating that it would be ridiculous for him to arm one community against another in his constituency.

Ogor accused those behind the accusation of conspiring to get into a subject he knows nothing about and challenged them to present evidence to support his claims.

According to him, “I represent the people of Isoko, they are all my constituents. I want to ask the Inspector General of Police and the Delta State Police Commissioner to intervene in the interests of peace and bring it to a logical end.

“The guilty must be arrested and prosecuted. I am absolutely disgusted with the accusations made by the Oleh clan chief that I bought weapons for anyone to kill people in my constituency.

“I am concerned about the murders. We must do everything possible to restore peace and end the crisis. The matter must be properly investigated.

“The most important thing now is that the perpetrators of the killings are caught and punished, and that the police do everything in their power in concert with the stakeholders to end the communal crisis and restore a lasting peace.”
