In the aftermath of the terrible shooting deaths of a CO, two majors, a captain, and twelve soldiers in Delta State, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) moved quickly to address the situation. Maj. Gen. The decision of the DHQ to order the immediate arrest of individuals involved for the terrible act was announced by Tukur Gusau, Acting Director of Defence Information, according to Vanguard.



The event happened while responding to a distress call after a communal disturbance in Delta State between the Okuama and Okoloba communities, according to Gusau. When the 181st Amphibious Battalion from the Bomadi local government district arrived to take action, they were brutally attacked.

“The reinforcement team led by the Commanding Officer was also attacked, leading to the death of the Commanding Officer, two Majors, one Captain, and 12 Soldiers,” said Gusau.


General Christopher Musa, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), has ordered a quick inquiry and the arrest of individuals implicated in the attack in response to this unfortunate tragedy. In addition, the DHQ has informed the Delta State Government about the event so that they can take appropriate action.


The military’s resolve to preserve national security and peace is unwavering, even in the face of this setback. According to Gusau, the military is hell-bent on fulfilling its mission and finding those responsible for the crimes.

“So far, a few arrests have been made while steps are in place to unravel the motive behind the attack,” Gusau continued, summing up the continuing efforts to resolve this serious security breach and pay tribute to the deceased soldiers.
