OLEH—INDIGENES of Ossissa, Ndokwa East Local Government Area, Delta State, have commended the state government for setting up security watch at flash points on routes of herdsmen to guard against attacks on people of the community.
The people, in a statement by the Eze-Ogbuzulu of Umueleke-Ossissa, Chief E. Olisenekwu said: “Since the flash points jointly manned by the police and vigilante were established in our bushes in the last week of June and other security measures put in place, no attack on our people or encroachment into our land has occurred.
“Peace and security has returned to Ossissa and our people have started farming again not only to feed themselves but also to feed other Deltans and Nigerians.
“The robberies on the road within Ossissa have also disappeared. The herdsmen attack at Anuga camp, Umueze-Ossissa where they killed a primary school boy occurred before this new security measures were put in place.
“We thank our governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa for his effective and good governance in the state. We also extend our thanks to the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Senior Security Adviser to the Governor, the immediate past Divisional Police Officer, Ashaka division, and the media.”
