Commander of Sector 1, Joint Task Force (JTF) codenamed Operation Delta Safe, Col Alhassan Grema, has cleared the air on the alleged invasion of Oporoza in Gbaramatu Kingdom of Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State by his troops.

 Oporoza is the village of former militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemukpolo alias Tompolo, who went underground after being declared wanted.

An online report by Nigerian Tribune quoted Col. Grema as saying in a text message that his men did not invade the community, but were only there on cordon and search operation based on intelligence report.

“No invasion. It was a simple cordon and search operation based on intelligence. Thanks,” Col. Grema stated.
