Allegations have emerged of the discovery of mutilated bodies, including those of commanding officers and soldiers, floating in the river of Okuoma community in Ughelli South Local Government Area.

Community sources have disclosed to Vanguard that some of the officers’ bowels were torn open by their assailants.

Speculation arose regarding the military’s handling of the corpses, with suggestions that they may have been moved to morgues elsewhere, potentially in Bayelsa or Warri.

The recent killing of 16 soldiers in the same community has escalated tensions across Ughelli and neighboring areas.

Reports indicate a significant military presence in Okuoma, with heavy artillery weapons being deployed through Bomadi Local Government Area. Locals have reported numerous buildings being razed down, although the exact count remains unconfirmed.

The unfolding situation in Okuoma has prompted concerns and fears among residents, as authorities work to address the violence and restore calm to the region.
