Gunmen suspected to be members of Greenland Cult loyal to one ‘General Crocodile’ on Saturday night, April 20, invaded Olokuma community in Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State, abducted and reportedly killed three male residents.

Daily Sun has learned that the corpse of one of the male victims who were reportedly killed has been recovered while efforts are on to recover the bodies of the other two.

An anonymous community source revealed that the attack by the suspected cultists was a reprisal by the armed gang that has been in disarray due to the unrelenting onslaught against cultism and other violent crimes by the Rivers State Police Command under the leadership of the Commissioner of Police, CP Olatunji Disu.

The community source disclosed that the attack and reported killing of suspected police informants by the gang members was to instil fear among the natives and also a calculated attempt by the hoodlums to discourage residents and natives from cooperating with the police and other security agents in areas of intelligence and information sharing.

The state police command was yet to confirm the attack and killing of three persons.

Meanwhile, the Civil-Military Police Paramilitary Relations (CIMPARR) has condemned the killing.

The coordinator of the group, Green Isaac, urged the state Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, to redeem the N100 million bounty placed on David Gift, popularly known as 2baba.

He said: “I am calling on the Governor of Rivers State to Siminalayi Fubara to redeem the N100 million 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 60 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 bounties like this are placed and they are not given to informants, it becomes an issue. We are pleading with the governor to release the sum.
