The military personnel and over three armoured vehicles were seen zooming across the Bomadi Bridge in the late hours of Sunday, reports Vanguard.

Vanguard reports that soldiers earlier deployed to the Okuama community have continued demolition of houses in the community, sequel to the last week killing of their men.

A community source, who spoke to Vanguard, said that the military were currently occupying Okuama with several houses demolished.

“As I’m talking to you right now, soldiers are there and they continue the demolition of buildings in the community, and I don’t think they would leave very so soon.

“They usually come to our community to buy some stuff and go back to Okuama”, he said.

Soldiers from the 181 Amphibious Battalion of the military Joint Task Force, JTF, Bomadi Division, led by the commander, were ambushed and killed on a rescue mission at Okuama two days ago.
