BREAKING: Service Chiefs, senators in closed-door meeting over soldiers’ killing in Delta

The Senate Joint Committee on Army, Navy, Defense, and Air Force committees and the service chiefs on Wednesday, March 20, held a meeting over the recent killing of soldiers in Delta state.

The purpose of the hearing was to investigate the horrific deaths of military personnel that occurred last Thursday in the Okuama community of the Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State.

A minute silence was first observed for the souls of the slain soldiers.

The joint committee chairman, Ahmed Lawan, said that the investigation hearing will take place behind closed doors due to the delicate nature of the subject.

Recall that the Defence Headquarters announced that 17 people died, including the 181 Amphibious Battalion’s commanding officer, two majors, a captain, and 12 battalion members.

Lawan said: “I extend my profound condolences to the families of these fallen soldiers, their colleagues, and their loved ones. The military high command is already responding to this incident. The cowardly offenders responsible for this heinous crime will not go unpunished.”
