OPOROZA VISIT: MINISTER DALUNG WAS SWINDLED BY MISCHIEVOUS PERSONS – OPOROZA COMMUNITY

GBARAMATU- The leadership of Oporoza Community, the headquarters of Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State have lambasted the visit of the Minister of Youth and Sports Hon. Solomon Dalung who claims he had an interactive session with members of Niger Delta Avengers and people of the Community.

This was contained in a Press Statement issued on behalf of the Community by  Mr. Johnbull Demebi, who dispelled a media report alleging that the Hon. Minister during his surreptitious visit to the Kingdom met with members of the NDA.

The statement also distanced itself from having any knowledge of hosting the Hon. Minister in the community while noting that the last government visitor to Oporoza community was the acting Inspector General of Police, Mr Abrahim Idris, that was given an arousing welcome.

Demebi alleges that the community had severally debunked any ties with the Niger Delta Avengers and have even condemned their actions subsequently and wonders on the ceaseless vilification of the Kingdom.

“Our attention has been drawn to a statement by the Hon. Minister of Youth and Sport as contained in the Monday edition of Daily Trust newspaper, that he paid a visit to the traditional headquarters of Gbaramatu kingdom, Oporoza town to have interactive session with members of the Niger Delta Avengers and community people.

“It is pertinent to state that, to the best of our knowledge, we the leadership of the community did not receive the Hon. Minister of Youth and Sport, or any other government official in Oporoza town last week. We have stated in many fora and occasions that we do not know anything about the Niger Delta Avengers.

“Oporoza town or any other community in Gbaramatu kingdom has nothing to do with the Avengers and their activities. We have in time past condemned the activities of the Avengers, therefore could not have anything to do with them in our community.

“As peace loving and law abiding citizens of Nigeria, we make bold to say that we are very receptive people, and have received several top government functionaries in our community, Oporoza. For the avoidance of doubt, the last government visitor to Oporoza community was the acting Inspector General of Police, Mr Abrahim Idris, and he was given an arousing welcome by the community, led by the chairman, Mr Johnbull Demebi. And so, we doubt the claim of the Hon. Minister, that he visited Oporoza community last week and had a meeting with members of Niger Delta Avengers and other community people.

“At this juncture, we wish to warn and advise government functionaries and Very Important Persons (VIPs) to be careful and mindful of persons they associate with, particularly with the intention of visiting our communities, as some persons are out there to make money from top government functionaries and bring the name of the community to disrepute. Hon. Minister Solomon Dalung should know that he has been deceived by mischievous persons and perhaps must have been swindled. And so whoever that intend to visit our communities to make proper arrangement with the leadership of such communities so as to avoid any mishap in the course of embarking on such journey.” The statement noted.
