Nigeria Military Denies Revenge Attack In Delta Community After 16 Soldiers Killed

The Nigerian military has denied claims of carrying out a reprisal attack on the Okuoma community in Delta State, where 16 of its officers were killed by youths of the community over the weekend.

In response to reporters, the defense chief, General Christopher Musa, denied that the military had initiated an attack on the community.

‘’”No reprisals by the army. We are searching for the murderers and their weapon cache,” Musa said.

Some Nigerians have alleged that some men in army uniform ransacked and burned homes in the community on Sunday, March 17, days after youths killed the officers.

The military sent 16 soldiers to settle a land dispute in a community. On Sunday, a video of houses burning in the community went viral, with some claiming that military officers were responsible.
