Warri â€” PANIC has gripped the people of Mosogar kingdom in Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta state, following the mysterious deaths of four persons in the area, including a councilor, Ochuko Ogude, who was kidnapped 21 January at Sapele, and killed by suspected militants.
Vanguard learnt that the four persons were picked up dead Friday, 19 March 2010 at Mosogar. Last year, one police officer from Oghara and two others were mysteriously murdered in the same area without any trace.
Worried by the security situation, the chief whip of Ethiope West Legislative Council, Oghenedoro Owoso, raised a motion of urgent public importance in the House, urging security operatives in the area to beef-up security in the local government to forestall a recurrence of the unfortunate situation in Mosogar kingdom.
Owoso recalled how Ogude was abducted at Sapele four months ago, and that all efforts to reach him proved abortive until 19 March when his corpse and three others were found at Mosogar completely decayed, an indication that he was murdered since 21 January when he was kidnapped, yet, security men were unable to trace him.
Arguing the motion, Owoso said: "If these killings should continue, what should be the fate of our people? All hands must be on deck to ensure the safety of lives and property of our people in order to uphold the peace and security agenda of this present government."
