According to him, the police have to sit-up and nip in the bud all forms of crimes and criminal activities in Uvwie, environs and Delta State at large.

He described the incident as disturbing and unwarranted, saying Late Chief Okoro was a peace-loving man who I believe does not have enemies across the board. “Not even when he was The Youth President of the Community”.

“On behalf of the Ekpan people, I condemn the murder of our dear brother by yet to be identified gunmen. I also commiserate with the family over this unfortunate demise of my dear friend and brother”, he added.

He called on the police and other security agencies to fish out those behind the heinous crime and bring them to justice.
