Olumide Jones Condemns killing of Soldiers In Delta, says Security Men Do Not deserve Cruelty

A former senatorial aspirant under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Olumide Jones has condemned the killing of military personnel in the Okuama community in Delta state.

On March 14, some personnel of the Nigerian army — comprising a lieutenant colonel, two majors, one captain, and 12 soldiers — were killed by youths while on a peace mission.

While reacting in a statement personally signed by him and made available to newsmen in Abeokuta,  the PDP Chieftain  called for an investigation into the incident, while saying calm should be maintained in the state.

He said that the men of the Nigerian Army had been putting their lives on the line to protect the citizens against insurgents and did not deserve this kind of cruelty.

"I received the news of the brutal killings of 16 men and officers of the Nigerian Army with rude shock. This despicable act must be condemned by all right thinking Nigerians".

"It is indeed high time, communities rally round our security personnel, most especially those in the first line of defense. We must not allow evils to flourish in our society. Our security men deserve the support and cooperation from Nigerians, and we cannot afford to expose them to further risk from within. He concluded
