Notorious cult leader killed during gunbattle in Rivers

Operatives of the Rivers State Police Command have killed a notorious cult leader on the police wanted list, Izuma David Odiereke aka Solution, in Owube Kingdom, Ahoada West Local Government Area of the state.

Nigeriacrime.com gathered that Izuma, leader of Greenland cult group in Owube was gunned down during a gun battle with the police operatives in a forest in the LGA at about 4 am on Monday.

The Commissioner of Police in the state Olatunji Disu, said that the killed cultist has been attacking security operatives in the area.

Disu said: “We have been having attacks from him. He has been on the wanted list since 2016. He is a serial killer. His clan was deserted because of his criminal activities. His reign came to an end when the command took men to his camp at Api Forest between Odiereke Ubie and Joinkarama 4 in Ahoada West LGA. Attempts were made to capture him three days ago but he escaped. We continued to lay siege on him”.

Disu listed over ten names of people killed by the Greenland Cult Commander during his reign, mentioning a Paramount Ruler, Sampson, as one of the notable persons killed by the gangster on February 2, 2024.

He commended officers of the Ahoada Area Command and Division for their dedication and commitment, urging them not to relent in their achievements.

However, the Chairman of Ahoada East LGA, Ben Eke, in his speech said: “I am very happy even if he is from Ahoada West and killed in Ahoada West, but the spread of criminality will reduce in my LGA.”
