Monarch Expresses Shock, Raises Concern
Tension and uneasy calm have continued to mount in Urhoka community in Abraka, Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State, following the alleged killing of two brothers, Akpovona Felix and Sunday Akpupu in their farm on Thursday.
Their bullet-riddled bodies were reportedly found in the bush path of their farm after elders of the community conducted a search party. Reports said the two brothers hailed from Eku village, but had lived in Urhoka before their untimely death.
In a swift reaction, the Ovie of Oruarivie-Abraka Kingdom, HRM Akpomeyoma Majoroh Ojeta II, who expressed shock on the incident, lamented that it was unfortunate that suspected Fulani herdsmen have turned their farms into battlefield. He appealed to security agents to ensure that the killers are fished out.
Police Image Maker in the State, Mr. Andrew Aniamaka confirmed that investigation was ongoing in the murder of the two brothers, assuring that the police will not relent until the killers are fished out.
