Soldiers have taken over Gbaramatu Kingdom, desecrated our temples - traditional ruler 

The
traditional ruler of Gbaramatu
Kingdom in Warri South West LGA of Delta State Oboro Gbaraun II,
Aketekpe Agadagba, has cried out over the intimidation of residents of
the community by Nigerian soldiers.

Agadagba lamented while speaking to journalists on phone:

“They
came with several of army warboats to beat up my people. They looted
our houses, descended on our people, humiliated and even injured an
80-year-old chief. Some women are still looking for their children.”

“I’m
in deep pains; I cannot move out of this palace. In fact, I am under
house arrest. All my chiefs have run away from the community; I’m here
alone and I don’t know what will happen to me next. The soldiers are now
the owners of this kingdom.”

“I am in danger. I am in the
darkness. They switched off the generating set that supplies
electricity. No water, even since morning, I have not had my bath.”
