Okuama Killings: Nigerian Army Releases Traditional Ruler After Questioning 



The Nigerian Army has released the traditional ruler of Ewu kingdom, Clement Ikolo Oghenerukvwe, who surrendered himself in the course of investigations into the killings of 17 military officers in Okuoma, Delta State.

In a short ceremony at the Nigerian Army Headquarters in Abuja, the Director of Army Public Relations, Maj. General Onyema Nwachukwu handed him over to the Senator representating Delta Central, Sen. Ede Dafinone. 

According to the Gen. Nwachukwu, the Army has painstakingly reviewed every available information on the incident and have come to the preliminary observation that while the culpability has not conclusively established against the traditional ruler, there is insufficient evidence to exonerate anyone at this stage. 

Nevertheless, on the intervention of eminent personalities and the fact that the monarch voluntarily turned himself in, he has been released to Sen. Dafinone on the condition to always assist in the ongoing investigations.


The army  further calls on other suspects to make themselves available for questioning.
