In a shocking revelation, the Rivers State Police Command, under the leadership of newly appointed Commissioner Tunji Disu, paraded a group of suspects accused of an appalling act – the alleged live burial of a Community Development Committee chairman from Kereken-Boue in the Khana Local Government Area.
The distressing incident was unveiled during the maiden briefing conducted by Commissioner Tunji Disu, where the police presented these suspects to the public. Alongside this grim discovery, the state command also exhibited a roster of other apprehended suspects, implicating them in various criminal activities, including kidnapping, armed robbery, and murder.
Commissioner Disu issued a stern warning to criminal elements within the state, affirming a relentless pursuit to ensure that there is no breathing space for lawlessness. This determined stance was emphasized during the press briefing, as Chief Ezekiel Gara, the traditional ruler of the Kereken-Boue community, showcased distressing photographs revealing victims of these alleged cultists. Gara highlighted the unfortunate reality that some members of the community were compelled to flee due to the threat posed by these individuals.
As a startling part of the parade, the police displayed an array of arms, ammunition, and assorted weaponry confiscated from the suspects upon their arrest, further underlining the severity of the situation.
This shocking revelation of alleged atrocities committed against the community leader has sent shockwaves across the region, prompting widespread concern and calls for justice as investigations continue.
