A great tension has engulfed the Ogulagha community in Delta State, following the killing of a young man, Endurance Oweiye Kalaepele, 27, who was allegedly shot twice by the military men attached to the Forcados Terminal at about 10 pm, Monday, June 27, 2023.
According to the Ogulagha Community youth president, ThankGod Iyaragba:
“Around 10 pm yesterday, Monday, June 27, 2022, six Ogulagha community boys went to the bush behind Forcados Terminal, the Pipeline bush, for snail picking, but were intercepted on their way back by the military men. One of the boys, Endurance, who tried to run out of fear was shot twice at close range.”
“This prompted the infuriated youths of the community to go on a rampage destroying company vehicles and property. They have also taken over the major roads in the community to express their anger,” he said.
The Police or Army are yet to arrive at the scene.
