There is wild jubilation in Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State over the release of the 10 innocent students and palace staff arrested during the May 28th military siege.

It was said that the Kingdom received the news of the release today with great ecstasy as they celebrate randomly in most communities of the Kingdom.

However, the 10 released Gbaramatu Sons allegedly spent over 100 days in detention before regaining freedom today.

According to a source that would not want his name to be mentioned, confirms the release to Gbaramatu Voice Newspaper while noting that as at the time of filing this report, the youths are still in Abuja and are said to come over to the Kingdom soonest.

It would be recalled that the release of the Youths came barely 24 hours after the death of Chief Thomas Ekpemupolo, father of former ex militant leader, Tompolo.

A source while commenting on the development, maintains that Gbaramatu Kingdom is now in a mood of celebration as he alleged that the news of the released youths have come to console the people as the entire Kingdom was thrown into a melancholic strain owing to the demise of Tompolo’s father.
