Okuama: Nigerian Army Releases Traditional Ruler

The Nigerian Army has released Clement Ikolo Oghenerukvwe, the traditional ruler (king) of Ewu Kingdom in Delta State. Oghenerukvwe surrendered himself to authorities earlier in the investigation into the brutal killings of 17 soldiers in the Okuama community.

The release took place today at the Nigerian Army Headquarters in Abuja. Major General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director of Army Public Relations, stated the army “painstakingly reviewed every available information” but found no conclusive evidence against the king. However, Nwachukwu emphasized there is not enough evidence to exonerate anyone at this point.

Oghenerukvwe was released to Senator Ede Dafinone, representing Delta North, on the condition that he continues to assist with the ongoing investigation. The army reiterated its call for the remaining suspects to come forward for questioning.

This development comes amidst heightened tensions in the Niger Delta following the attack. While the army assures a professional approach to finding the perpetrators, residents remain anxious.
