Illegal invasion of Biafra land: More Nigerian soldiers drawn in Bayelsa State

Illegal invasion of Biafra land: More Nigerian soldiers drawn in Bayelsa State
Published By Family Writers

Two Nigerian soldiers have been confirmed dead and several others injured in a boat mishap in Delta State, a day after a soldier drowned in Bayelsa State.

The latest incident, which happened on Friday, involved a military patrol team around the creeks of Egwa 1, near an SPDC flow station in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta.

It came after another boat mishap at Agip’s oil field in Bayelsa on Thursday killed a soldier.

Some residents of the area told PREMIUM TIMES that the incident occurred around 10 am Friday.

The residents wondered why the military was deploying troops who could not swim to engage militants in their familiar terrain.

The incident, it was learnt, has thrown the Joint Task Force (JTF), Operation Pulo Shied and 3 Battalion of the Nigerian Army Effurun, into mourning.
Community sources also confirmed the incident but could not give details.

A senior military officer, who later confirmed the incident, said the military boat was carrying about 10 soldiers when it capsized.

The officer said they were on a normal routine patrol of oil installations around the Egwa 1 community when the incident occurred.

It was further gathered that those who sustained various degrees of injuries had been conveyed to an undisclosed hospital for medical care in Warri.
They were patrolling the creeks when the incident happened. Report reaching us says scores were injured,” the officer, who spoke on a condition of anonymity said.

Isa Ado, JTF’s spokesman could not be reached for response. Calls and a text message sent to his telephone line were equally not answered or replied.

  1. We should stop reporting their casualties but rather report the killing and raping of women and children by these irresponsible army of occupation. We have to remind Igbo and Niger Delta soldiers on why they must not participate in killing their fellow Easterners, mothers and children.
    War is about propaganda foe sympathy of the world and not for strength, we must not create the impression if killing the soldiers but soldiers killing our people, we have to attract sympathy.
    You guys are occupying oil rich region you must reach out to Russian or American oil moguls to supply you mercenaries to reorganize and train your men into units and supply you requisite arms.
