There has been palpable tension and anger in Warri and its environs for the past few days after a Naval personnel attached to the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) Jalla, Warri South Local Government area of Delta state shot and killed two community youths following argument over job slots in the company at about 2:30pm on Friday, May 12th.
According to THISDAY, one of the victims simply identified as Agbolu was from Ifie community where the company is sited in Warri South and Ekpan from Ekpan in Uwvie local government council.
It was gathered that youths from both communities were engaged in job slot negotiations with the management of NPDC when argument arose that was amicably resolved but shockingly the Navy personnel was said to have moved in and shot first into the air before shooting point-blank at the two boys who gave up the ghost immediately.
Speaking on the matter at the police
“A” Division Headquarters, Chairman of Warri South Local Government Hon. Mofe Edema expressed sadness over the shooting saying “this is one killing too many. How can NNPC engaged security personnel be killing these innocent community youths like flies every time. It is just not fair"
Angry Ifie youths stormed the police station but were later directed to the NPDC premises while the Ifie community Trust Chairman Griftson Edema was asked by the aggrieved council chairman to make an entry of the matter. The DPO in-charge of the station Aniete Eyoh was out on official assignment but other officers were on hand to pacify the angry Ifie youths.
