Governor Oborevwori, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sir Festus Ahon, condoled the military and the families of the officers and soldiers who died in the attack.

He said the government of Delta state was deeply disturbed by the violence and unprovoked killing of the officers and soldiers, which he described as alien to the culture of Deltans.

His words: “This incident is despicable and not in sync with the culture and tradition of Deltans. It runs contrary to the values and path of peace that the State Government is promoting as I have always emphasized in our MORE agenda to enhance peace and security. 

“On behalf of the government and good people of Delta state, I wish to condole, in particular, the families of the killed gallant officers and soldiers, the Nigerian Army and the Armed Forces of Nigeria in general, over this sad occurrence. 

“The state government shall take all measures necessary to fish out all those behind this dastardly act and ensure they are made to face the full wrath of the law. 

“Delta state is governed within the tenets of the rule of law and human decency. Acts such as this incident cannot and will not be tolerated. 

“I urge all citizens and residents of the state to remain law-abiding and the state government shall continue to take necessary measures to protect lives and property in Delta state.”
