A number of Okuama indigenes on Monday reported to the internally displaced persons (IDP) camp set up by the Delta State Government in Ewu in Ughelli South local government area of the State.

Recall that the people of Okuama community had been displaced, following the reported killing of 17 soldiers on March 14th around the community.

In what is termed as a revenge mission by the Nigerian army, all properties in Okuama were allegedly destroyed, with only a Church building standing.

Okuama people had before now rejected the State government’s offer of the IDP Camp at Ewu.

However, following several stakeholders engagements with an appeal for the Okuama people to trust the government initiative and embrace the rehabilitation program, the indigenes started arriving on Monday.

Over a hundred persons, including women and children, have reported to the camp and have been profiled and registered by camp officials.
