The legal luminary expressed disappointment that some Nigerians were still found in such an attitude of attacking personnel who were on a peace mission in the region.

Delta killings: “Respect rule of law”, lawyer urges

She further called for the respect of the rule of law and rationality in dealing with the issue in the Niger Delta Region while calling for justice for the perpetrators of the crime.

She said:

The recent crisis in the Niger Delta region and the killings of soldiers are deeply troubling and appalling. It’s unacceptable that in the 21st century, citizens of Nigeria would perpetrate such heinous acts against personnel who are serving our nation and working to protect their communities.

Reports indicate that communities in Ughelli South and Bomadi local government areas have been affected by military operations, leading to residents fleeing their homes out of fear of reprisal attacks. While we await justice for the perpetrators of these crimes, it’s crucial to emphasize the importance of adhering to the rule of law and rationality rather than being driven by emotions.
