Oyigbo Chiefs Beg Army To Retain Soldiers by valirex: 8:18am On Nov 21
Tension has persisted in Oyigbo, the Local Government Area in Rivers State, which came under attacks by hoodlums identified as members of the disbanded Indigeneous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).

Chiefs in the council at the weekend expressed fears that the fleeing IPOB members could regroup and return to the area.

They recalled how members of the proscribed group hijacked the #EndSARS protest killing six soldiers, four policemen and destroying all police stations and a court among other things in the area.

The chiefs implored the Defence Headquarters not to withdraw soldiers deployed to restore peace in the Oyigbo to prevent remnants of IPOB from regrouping.

The chiefs under the aegis of Ogbakor Oyigbo, also urged persons, who deserted Oyigbo to return as normalcy had been restored.

High Chief, Eze Ukwu III, Louis Okorie, said they were not interested in the call by some persons to withdraw the troops.

He expressed serious concern that if soldiers were withdrawn from Oyigbo, IPOB anarchists would unleash violence in the area.

He said: “The Ogbakor Oyigbo General held a meeting here and said they will not allow the removal of soldiers from Oyigbo.

“On 12th of November, 2020 we met with the Local Government Chairman, Gerald Aforji, informing him of our plight. We don’t want Army to be withdrawn for the benefit of Oyigbo people.

“We need to be careful of the remnants of IPOB terrorists. We thank Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for imposing the curfew which has calmed down the situation in Oyigbo.”

Also,High Chief, Lisbery Onyegorom, narrated that indigenes of Oyigbo were still in shock following the wanton destruction unleashed on their community by members of the outlawed IPOB.

He said: “We were surprised by the level of destruction by the IPOB. We are Rivers State and Niger Delta people. Our people are not members of IPOB . I am not aware of any Oyigbo indigene who is a member. We don’t allow that.

“Now, that the IPOB members have killed some soldiers, all of them have run away. The Army is investigating and fishing them out . Most of the IPOB members arrested have given vital information about the remnants.

“We are in support of the Governor’s ban on IPOB activities across Rivers State and hoisting of IPOB Flag.”

Onyegorom frowned at allegation of extrajudicial killings levelled against the Army by some persons playing petty politics with the Oyigbo issue.

“We are solidly behind our Governor’s effort to maintain peace in Oyigbo. The Governor did not say, go and kill people. The Army came on a rescue mission . That’s what they came for.

“It is the deployment of the Army that give us comfort to remain here. For now, we hear of threat to protest again. Army is going nowhere. Let the Army stay until we are sure of peace in Oyigbo.”

“Those who ran away should come back. The Army is not chasing any body. Army is not killing any person. Let the Army stay, until we are sure peace has returned.”

On his part, the Chairman of Oyigbo Local Government Area, Prince Gerald Oforji said most of the negative reports were unfounded.

“Today, I am very happy for the visit by the Ovation family to assess the wanton destruction carried out on the 20 October by the IPOB. Today ,they have come to assess and see things for themselves based on lopsided information they have been getting concerning Oyigbo.

“I believe with what they have seen today, the world, can confirm that most of those negative information posted against Oyigbo, against Rivers State, are unfounded.”

It's reckless to withdraw troops now, because reprisal attacks from Northerners, and revenge attacks from Ipob can happen soon, even cult war might spring up

Eyaaa. It appears you've been hoping to become a made man through the fraudulent and criminal activities of ipob, and seeing what is happening in OYIGBO, you feel your livelihood is under threat.

If I were you, I'd start looking elsewhere to fend for myself rather than this hopeless ipob course. Your invasion of Oyigbo was a catastrophic mistake and could possibly be the last you're ever allowed to make since it will ultimately result in the death of the criminal enterprise led by an unrepentant con man.

There are names of Chiefs in the report with what they said in QUOTATION MARKS, indicating they're being reported VERBATIM, so also L. G. Chairman. But given your penchant to scuff at whatever doesn't sit well with the security of your meal ticket, you had no choice but to call it fake news.

You're a disgrace to adulthood Gidgiddi.

I don't like Wike and his type of politics but on Oyibo I must commend him for acting swiftly.

IPOB wanted to overrun Mile One Police Station, UST Roundabout police station and Olu Obasanjo police station in one fell swoop but thanks to E-Crack team in Mile one who knew what will happen to them if they had succeeded.

You are laughable just like the people peddling this fake news. This story was posted yesterday in the link below. They said that Dele Momodu went to Obigbo and met with the Chiefs, who narrated how IPOB attacked the area. When I now posted the video of Momodus trip to the area showing that he met no Chiefs, they quickly cut out Dele Momodu from the story and posted this new one

So quotations marks is what makes a story true? Anyone can put quotation marks and mention any name. Thats why this story has no source.

What Im waiting for is the story of how IPOB, that is not known to be armed, killed 6 armed Soldiers. This is not possible without a heavy gun battle. Where did this gun battle take place? What are the name of these 6 Soldiers? Where their bodies? How is it that IPOB killed 4 Policemen and 6 Soldiers but nobody knows knows anything about them?

The authorities have become so used to Nigerians believing anything they dish out to them. They dont know that this is the age of social media where making false statements without evidence no longer obtains

I live around mile one area, Emenike street precisely. U can't change the narrative to suit your purpose while thinking nobody is going to debunk your statement. That day the incident occurred in Mile one, how did u know it was IPOB members who attempted to burn Mile police station and UST roundabout Police station in the wave of EndSars protests rocking the nation?

Everything around mile one happened in my presence. And from what I saw, area boys and criminals around Emenike bus stop, including Iceland and Dey Bam cult groups were the guys wreaking havoc.

So, how does IPOB come into it?

Lol, don't them. This is Wike's wickedness in action. The Paramount ruler of Obigbo came out to warn the army to desist from extrajudicial killings few days ago only for a group of men to be assembled and bribed by Wike to read a script he gave them.

Yen yen yen. You're such a shameless boy. Locations and names were mentioned. If it is untrue, why don't you go meet the local chiefs and Chairman and ask them if indeed they said those words.

Rightly asking the Army to stop extrajudicial killings is not the same as asking them to remain to keep the peace and ensure the ipob terrorists do not return to terrorise their innocent people.

Momodu must have thought ipob were harmless agitators but thank goodness he heard the truth from the horses mouth.

What are you saying? Save your juvenile antics for gullible ipob cretins.

This is from your link :

A high chief, Eze Ukwu III, Louis Okorie, told Momodu and his delegation that the community chiefs do not approve the withdrawal of soldiers from Oyigbo. He expressed serious concern that if soldiers are withdrawn from Oyigbo, IPOB anarchists would unleash violence in the area.

" The Ogbakor Oyigbo General held a meeting here yesterday and said they will not allow the removal of soldiers from Oyigbo. On 12th of November, 2020 we met with the Local Government Chairman, Gerald Aforji, informing him of our plight. We don't want Army to be withdrawn for the benefit of Oyigbo people. We need to be careful of the remnants of IPOB terrorists. We thank Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for imposing of curfew which has calmed down the situation in Oyigbo.”

There is no difference from the Nations report. The Oyigbo Chiefs (Ogbakor Obigbo Oyigbo) don't want the army to leave because they fear the return of ipob terrorists. There was also no massacre by the military according to Dele Momodus eyewitness account.

Now except you're trying to be silly, there is no how the lack of a video will invalidate the detailed accounts of Momodu and the Oyigbo High Chiefs.

You're trying to be mischievous as usual but you have hit a brick wall this time.
