Ijaw youth leader behead during an inter-community attack in Warri, Delta State

An Ijaw youth leader, Mr Ebi Tontimi has been beheaded, others injured during an attack on Ogbe-Ijoh-Isaba community in Warri South West local government area of Delta state by the youths from Aladja, a neighbouring Urhobo community. The attack which took place on Thursday 16th November led to the death of Ebi Tontimi. The attack which was described as a surprise attack by George prompted Government intervention.

The Niger Delta Ex-Agitators’ for Peace Organization (NDEPO) has called on the Delta state governor, Arthur Okowa Ifeanyi to intervene to discourage such diabolic acts, adding that the senseless killings taints the image of the state and do not portray the state government in good light as investors may be scared to come to the area.

Speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Thursday,Comrade Ambassador George Sinclair, the National Coordinator of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators for Peace Organization, stressed that such unwarranted and senseless attack on communities by neighbouring communities in the local government area, speaks volume of the high level insecurity in the state, particularly in Warri South West local government area.

He added that if the ugly trend is allowed to continue without meaningful and visible government’s intervention, the insecurity level may get to a point where there could be revenge attacks that could lead to a full scale inter-community war.

He therefore called on the Delta state governor to act immediately by setting up a judicial commission of enquiry to investigate the remote cause of the invasion of the attacked community to quickly put to end the killings and resolve the crisis, lamenting that it was appalling to hear of a neighboring community invading a sister community to the point of even beheading two young leaders in broad day light.

George who said that the incident was as a surprise attack on the collective sensibilities of the people, blamed the Delta state government for its insensitivity over the long-lasting inter community crisis that has been going on for a while without any noticeable reaction from either the state governor or the Delta State House of Assembly.

Jiang, sold the one-year-old to a couple after owing more than 60,000 Yuan (£6,798), according to reports in China.

Jiang told his wife that he was taking their daughter to stay with his mother. He flew the child more than 1,150 miles away from their home in Guiyang, Guizhou province, last November.

Wang, his wife grew concerned after his failure to return three months later but repeatedly postponed their return.

In February, 2019, she checked her husband’s phone and found shocking conversations between her husband and her daughter’s buyers.

Wang went to her husband’s mother in Zunyi city, about 87 miles away, who informed her that her son and granddaughter left her weeks ago.

She immediately contacted police and they tracked Jiang down to a hotel in Guiyang last month.

When he was caught, Jiang admitted to owing a huge gambling debt and decided to take the drastic measure after seeing online adverts for child adoption.

Fortunately, the child was located by the police last Friday and reunited with her mum.

Jiang has been arrested and charged with suspicion of human trafficking, according to the police.
