According to the military authority, the victims were officers of the 181 Amphibious Batallion in the Bomadi local government area of Delta.

General Christopher Musa, the chief of defence staff, ordered an immediate investigation and arrest of anyone involved in the heinous killing.

A few days after Musa’s order, the people of the Okuama community reportedly ran to a neighbouring community over the fear of a reprisal attack from the soldiers.

Earlier on Tuesday, the president of the senate, Godswill Akpabio, said the killers of the soldiers could have been some mercenaries while calling for efforts to restore peace.
