Reps To Invite Army Over Ogoni Killings

The House of Representatives Committee on Army on Tuesday said it would invite the Nigerian Army to explain its roles in killings that took place in Ogoniland in February.

The committee stated this shortly after visiting communities affected by the army raid in Gokana and Khana local government areas of Rivers State.

The military had allegedly invaded some suspected criminal hideouts in Yeghe community in Gokana, leading to several deaths.

During the invasion, the soldiers searched the house of ex- militant leader, Mr. Solomon Ndigbara and later demolished several buildings including that of Ndigbara.

The Chairman of the Committee, Hon. Rima Shawulu-Kwewun, said the army would be invited for questioning, pointing out that the invitation would enable the security agency to get fair hearing on the matter.
