A prominent Delta indigene, Ejiro Ernest Ofoye Esq has commended the Senator representing Delta Central, Senator Ede Dafinone for his efforts in securing the release of His Royal Majesty, King Clement Ikolo, Urhukpe 1, the revered monarch of Ewu-Urhobo Kingdom in Ughelli South Local Government Area of the State. 

He was earlier declared wanted, for which he turmed himself to the police and the police handed him over to the military. 

This is following an attack in Okuama community, which falls within the domain of the traditional ruler. During the attack, at least 16 military personnel were killed, a development that has attracted nationwide condemnation. 

However, in a statement on Friday, Ejiro Ofoye while commending the lawmaker for the move said his swift intervention has brought immense relief to the Urhobo nation and restored hope in the face of adversity.

He said, "The circumstances surrounding the Monarch's detainment were distressing, and your steadfast commitment to justice has been a beacon of hope for us all. Your advocacy for fairness and adherence to due process serves as a shining example of true leadership, inspiring trust and confidence in your ability to represent the interests of Delta Central Senatorial District with honor and integrity.

"Your intervention not only brought about the release of the Monarch but also upheld the principles of democracy and the rule of law. Your dedication to serving the people is evident in your tireless efforts to ensure that justice prevails, even in the most challenging of circumstances.

"On behalf people of goodwill in Delta Central senatorial district, I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and relentless pursuit of justice. Your actions have made a profound difference in our lives, and we are truly grateful for your outstanding service to Urhobo's and our nation."
