We’ve been rendered homeless by military, Ondo community cries out
Sequel to the killing of a soldier and a militant, Ossy Ibori in Ajakpa community in Eseodo Local Government Area of Ondo State, the community Wednesday alleged the attack on their community by military men attached to Operation Delta Safe.
The community leaders, who stormed Akure, the state capital, said not less than 5,000 houses have been raised down by the marauding soldiers.
Also, they said about 30,000 inhabitants of the community have been rendered homeless after their residences were set ablaze by the soldiers who they alleged were trying to revenge the killing of their man and injury of others.
Speaking on behalf of Ajakpa Community, Mr Tonye Ebitibituwa, a retired Commissioner of Police said they did not support the criminal activities of Ibori who had relocated from Lagos to the Ajakpa community.
According to him, the people of Ajakpa have been living in fear since Sunday when there was shootout between the military and the militants leading to causalities on both sides. They said humanitarian crisis had been created in the riverine community.
