The convener of Rescue Delta Media Group, RDMG, Dr Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, has attributed the death of royal father, Obi Edward Ufulue II, the traditional ruler of Ubulu Uku, to security lapses in Delta State.
He blamed Governor Ifeanyi Okowa over the unfortunate incident.
The RDMG boss, who blamed the state governor over the unfortunate incident, was not impressed by what he called the ‘careless attitude of the state government’s security apparatus’ in the search for the late monarch, who was kidnapped.
He said the search team did a poor job, adding that not enough of public enlightenment and security strategies were utilised to rescue the Obi of Ubulu Uku from the hands of his captors.
“RDMG is pained by the clumsy leadership style of Gov Okowa who for all intent and purposes, he is the Chief Security Officer of the state.”
The group asserted that the CSO of the state has the same capacity and authority of a military troop commander who is saddled with the responsibility of issuing out strategic and decisive instructions to his men with the sole objective of winning a war.
Latimore said that it was very unfortunate that the people of Ubulu Uku and Deltans in general had to mourn a royal father whose reign ought to surpass several more decades to come.
He prayed God to grant the royal palace and the Ubulu Uku people the fortitude to bear the demise of their monarch.
