Fubara orders manhunt for Rivers DPO killers



Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubari, met with heads of security formations in the state on Sunday, charging them to find and arrest the killers of the late SP Bako Angbashim, the Divisional Police Officer of Ahoada, who was brutally murdered by some criminal gangs on Friday.

The governor specifically urged the security agencies to get the prime suspect, Gift Okpara Okpolowu, aka 2 Baba, at all costs as a clear statement that the state is not a haven for criminals.

Fubara stated this while briefing the Government House press corps shortly after an Emergency Security Council meeting in the state seat of power in Port Harcourt.

This was contained in a statement signed by the media aide to the governor, Boniface Onyedi.

According to the statement, Fubara, who described the incident as unfortunate and barbaric, sympathised with the Nigerian Police and the family of the slain senior police officer.

He said, “It is really unfortunate that in our state, where we are doing everything to reduce crime rates, a group of miscreants portray the state as being unsafe. We honestly feel very sad about this incident.
