Youths in Ogulagha Community in Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State have burnt houses and destroyed valuables over the death of their Community Chairman, Solomon Prebor.
According to reports, the Chairman died in a fatal accident on his way back from Lagos State with some associates. When these youths heard the news of his death, they started attacking people who were not loyal to the chairman when he was alive. The residents of the community have called on security agencies to come to their rescue.
An eyewitness who preferred to be anonymous said a Community member had dragged the Chairman and members of his Executive before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over allegations of misappropriation of Community funds, especially the monies from oil companies operating in their domain.
“On their way back from Lagos State, their vehicle had a fatal accident and only the Chairman died. The youths are angry because they feel the death was a spiritual attack on the Chairman because no other person sustained injuries in the accident,” the eye witness added.
