Be cautious over Ugborodo crisis, Navy urged

Ghana navy16 June 2014, Warri – The Naval High Command in Abuja has been charged to direct its officers and men in the Warri axis, Delta State, to be cautious in handling the crisis in Ugborodo community, particularly in its efforts to reconcile the different groups in the community, so as not to become tools in the hands of some individuals who intend to use the Navy to achieve selfish purposes, including the settling of personal scores.

Reacting to the movement of Naval  personnel into Ugborodo community last Saturday, Mr. Toritseju Ereku, spokesman of Ugborodo Community for Justice, a community- based organisation, said:  “In the history of crises between groups, achieving peace and reconciliation between hitherto warring groups has never been achieved with the application of force.”

Ereku said that the present strategy adopted by the Navy to allegedly hoodwink the Ugborodo community to reversing its sanctions on some individuals will only be counter-productive and exacerbate the crises.
