Soldiers invaded Kokodiagbene, another Ijaw community in Gbaramatu clan, Warri South-West Local Government Area, Delta State, weekend, in search of members of Niger Delta Avengers who went underground after their meeting in Bayelsa State, last week.

A report this morning in vanguard quoted Chairman of the community, Mr Sheriff Mulade, as saying yesterday: “We condemn strongly the invasion of Kokodiagbene on Saturday by the military Joint Task Force, JTF. Some people were beaten up, while others were harassed. It was uncalled for.”

The report also spoke of the restriction of the movement of speedboats and vessels in six riverine local government areas of the state.

It said: “Also, to rein in Niger Delta Avengers, Delta State Government has banned the movement of speedboats and vessels in six riverine local government areas of the state between the hours of 10p.m. and 5a.m The affected councils are Warri North, Warri South, Warri South-West, Patani, Bomadi and Burutu.”
