A community source revealed to newsmen that the attack by the cultists was a reprisal by the armed gang that has being in distress and disarray due to unrelenting onslaught against cultism and other violent crime by the Rivers State Police Command under the leadership of CP Olatunji Disu, the state Commissioner of Police.
Our sources disclosed that the gunmen during the attack killed three suspected Police informants to instill fear among the natives.
He said the attack was also a calculated attempt by the hoodlums to discourage residents and natives from cooperating with the Police and other security agents on areas of intelligence and information sharing.

He said “I am calling on the Governor of Rivers State to Siminalayi Fubara to redeem the 100 million naira pledge as a bounty on the head of David Gift aka 2Baba. 2Baba has been brought down, the Governor should please redeem the pledge. It is about sixty days since 2Baba was brought down and nothing has happened.This pledge has become necessary following reports that armed gangs are now targeting informants who may have been very useful in giving Police useful information to help them work in the community, helping the Police to work and do their job very well.
“When bounty like this are placed and there are not giving to informants, it becomes an issue.We are pleading with the Governor to release the sum”.
