by on April 2, 2016

Exactly a week after some Naval personnel killed a kinsman of former militant leader and wanted High Chief, Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo, another gang of military officers suspected to come from the Nigerian Navy on Thursday almost killed an­other prominent commu­nity leader in the state.

The victim, Lucky Emuakpor Izeku who is the chairman of Enerhen community escaped death by a whisker from the irate naval personnel who shot sporadically at his car.

Sources at the commu­nity said the incident was already brewing severe ten­sion in the volatile Ener­hen community of Uvwie council area of the state.

Eyewitnesses narrated that trouble started when members of the commu­nity embarked on a peace­ful protest to Arco Marine Limited, a local oil servicing firm alleged to be relocating from the community with­out paying local staff that have been working with them for years.

However, some naval ratings suspected to be mounting guard for the company confronted the community chairman why he had to park his car on the company’s premises, a situation that snowballed into serious confrontation with the protesters.
