Kokori town under military siege

LAGOS OCTOBER 7TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Dozens of naked Kokori women, on Sunday afternoon took to the streets to protest the siege on the Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State community by troops of the Joint Task Force (JTF).
Reports from the community indicated that the about 100 naked protesters were unhappy that their husbands have fled the community due to the military operation launched in the wake of the arrest of notorious criminal, Kelvin Oniarah.

It was gathered that naked young and old protesters defied soldiers who were deployed to the community in the wake of Friday’s attack on the palace of the Ovie of Agbon Kingdom, HRM Ogurimerime Ukori 1, by armed youths suspected to be members of the notorious kidnap kingpin’s gang.
A source from the community said, “The women number about 100, they are singing mourning songs about the fate of Kokori.”
“They said the soldiers who prevented their husband from coming home should come and sleep with them and perform the duties of their husbands,” a source from the community told our reporter on telephone.
The Commanding Officer of Sector 1 command of the JTF, Lt. Colonel Ifeanyi Otu, could not be reached for comment.
