Police take over Warri Community Market Square as tension heightens over repeated attacks by Uvwie Youths

 

The Police from ‘A’ Division, Warri has taken over Okere Market Square, Okere in the heart of Warri, Warri South Local Government Area in Delta State, following alleged repeated attacks by Youths of Ekpan Community, Uvwie Local Government Area, Fresh Angle International can exclusively report.

Checks by your Soaring Tabloid revealed that the brewing tension is a fallout of the politically motivated killings which occurred at Uvwie prior to the Presidential and National Assembly elections. The killings which reportedly started with the murder of two youths who purportedly defected from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC, crescendo with the bloody murder of Ngozi Ijie, Aide to Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.

Since the killings at Uvwie, security men have raided Okere Community, not less than two occasions on the pretext of searching for culpable Ekpan Youths that purportedly relocated to Okere Community for fear of reprisal attack.

Our Managing Editor reports that during the March 9 Governorship/ Houses of Assembly elections, the timely intervention of military men on patrol, saved the life of Provost of Okere Community Youths, Mr. Moses Oki, who came under attack by youths believed to be from Ekpan.

Another attack on the face with broken bottle on one Mr. Eyitemi at Ekpen Street by Pages Bar in Okere, Wednesday March 20, by suspected Ekpan youths, has fueled speculations that some youths from Ekpan have vowed to hoist their flag in Okere and take over the historic town known for the famous Awankere Festival.
