Six Killed As Gunmen Attack Rivers Community

No fewer than 6 residents of Odiokwu community in Ahaoda West Local Government Area of Rivers State have lost their lives to an attack by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

According to an eyewitness, who spoke anonymously, the incident happened on Sunday around 11 am.

Members of the Christian community in the area, who were preparing to go to church, were also killed by the assailants.

The source pointed out that 27 persons have lost their lives to different attacks in Ekpeye kingdom within the month of March.

Furthermore, the source urged security operatives in the state to rescue the people, who he said were living in fear.

He said, “This thing happened at exactly 11am this Sunday. Some bad guys just came to a compound where youths were just resting.

“Some other visitors who are also tenants in that compound were also outside, preparing for church this morning. Just for them to be shot like that. About six persons were shot.

“And these persons that were shot were not members of any cult group. Neither did they have any problem with the community or any cult group.

“And this thing baffles us. As I’m talking to you now, we have recorded a total number of 27 persons killed in Ekpeye in this month of March.

“We have traditional leaders, we have political leaders, we have a government in Rivers State. Why is it that Ekpeye is being abandoned? Instead, people send guns and money to these buys.

“We are calling on the Federal Government and the international community, since the state government is not doing anything about the killings, to come to our aid.”

The police, as at the time of filing this report, is yet to respond.
