Extra judicial killing in Delta community: Reps to investigate Navy



 By Titus Agbo, Abuja


 The House of Representatives has resolved to investigate the killing of two
unarmed men at Ifie, in Delta state by Navy personnel.

Consequently the Committee on Navy  has been mandated to interface with the Nigerian Navy to
ensure that proper investigation and prosecution of the Naval
Personnel who killed the two youths on Thursday, 11 May,
2017, and report back within four (4) weeks for further legislative action.

The House in plenary also condemned the
incidents of extra-judicial killings of residents of Ifie
community by military personnel guarding oil companies in
the community and observed a minute in silence in honour
of the deceased and expressed its condolences to their families.

This was however sequel to a motion raiseded by Rep Daniel Reyenieju,Warri Federal
Constituency, Delta titled: Call to Investigate The Killing of Two unarmed Men at Ifie, Delta State By Navy

In his submission, Reyenieju stated that “Ifie Community, near Warri has for decades been a host community to many oil companies,
including the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)and Tank Farms, which necessitated the companies to engage
military personnel to provide security to the immediate areas and confines of the respective oil companies that
engage their services.

“Also the community has consistently opted for peaceful relationship with those companies such
that no incident had been recorded which would have affected
the nation’s economy
“But on Thursday, 12 May, 2017, two unarmed youths, Mr Jonah March and Mr Agbolu Arumabi were
killed by a Naval Personnel attached to Warri Refinery and Petrochemical Company, and similar incidents of killings of
residents had  been recorded between 2005 and this year.

 “As we speak none of the incidents was investigated, and so, nobody was prosecuted for the
killings, a situation that is breeding impunity in the military personnel and if not checked, will exacerbate the
already tense atmosphere in the community which is gradually losing confidence in the security apparatus of the nation. “And Section 14 (2) (b) of the
Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 provides that the security and welfare of the people shall
be the primary purpose of Government which is a pointer to this issue.

The speaker, Yakubu Dogara who presided over the plenary said the motion was a straight forward matter and when it
was put to a voice vote the ays carried the day.

Also, yesterday, the House asked the Committees on Public Accounts, NDDC, Finance, and
Anti-Corruption to conduct investigation with a view to ascertaining all outstanding sums due to the NDDC, its
utilization of funds from 2015 to date and make recommendations within four 4 weeks for further legislative

This was sequel to a motion sponsored by Rep Kingsley Chinda, PDP, Rivers entitled: ‘Need to
Investigate Statutory Funding of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)

In his presentation,Chinda noted  that “the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) was
established in 2000 as an agency of the Federal Government with mandate to, among other things, formulate policies for
the development of the Niger Delta region.

 “But over the years, there have been serious concerns regarding the poor funding of the NDDC by
the Federal Government which is failing to remit the statutory funds to the Commission

“And  Section 14 of the Niger Delta Development Commission Act which provides that there
shall be paid and credited to the Fund established pursuant to subsection (1) of this section:
(a)from the Federal Government, the equivalent of fifteen percent of the total monthly statutory allocations due to member States of the Commission from the Federation Account, this being the contribution of the Federal Government to the Commission,
(b)three percent of the total annual budget of any oil-producing company operating onshore and
offshore in the Niger Delta area, including gas producing companies,

(c) fifty percent of monies due to member States of the Commission from the Ecological Fund,

(d)such movies as may, from time to time, be granted or lent to or deposited with the Commission
by the Federal or a State Government of any other body or institution, whether local of foreign;

He expressed worry that” the failure to comply with the above provisions has greatly undermined the
efficient performance of the mandate of the Commission.

“Except  urgent steps are taken to address the prevailing trend, the essence of setting up the Commission would be defeated and the people of the Niger
Delta would become discontent and despondent with the system, a situation that could affect the socio-political
and economic development of the area.

The speaker, Yakubu Dogara without debate put it to a voice vote and the ayes unanimously voted in
its favour.
