The Udu Council boss stated this in a statement issued and signed by his Chief Press secretary, Mr. Henry Ubuvwerorose in reaction to Newspaper reports quoting the spokesman of the Nigerian Army, 6 Division, Port-Harcourt, Col. Aminu Iliyasu as saying that the council boss was with the troops when they entered Aladja for the operation on Monday.
Chief Jite maintained that he was never near the scene of the crisis as he was presiding over the Executive Council meeting of the Local Government when the fracas broke out and he had to adjourn the meeting abruptly when he was informed on phone that some persons had been killed in Aladja by the military.



‘’When the Chairman got to Aladja to get first hand information on what transpired, he discovered that the army might have been angered by the resistance from the protesters, mostly women, who were bitter over the attack on Aladja by Ogbe-Ijoh assailants earlier in the day, who opened fire to scare the protesters away only to end up killing unarmed, defenceless civilians in cold blood and wounding several. The council chairman wish to use this medium to convey his sincere condolences to the families of the deceased. We also want to assure the Aladja and Udu people that the Delta State Government is on top of the situation and that a lasting solution would be found to the crisis very soon’’, the statement added.

The Udu Council Chairman also called for calm from all parties in the crisis as the wind of war can only result in more heart-breaks, calling on the people to cooperate with government in the task of maintaining peace and proffering solutions to the boundary dispute between the two communities involved in the crisis.
