Just In: Gunmen Shot Dead Assembly Leader In Rivers



Gunmen have shot dead the Leader of the Ahoada West legislative Assembly, Rivers State, Ekele Chikobi, popularly known as “EFCC” on Thursday along the now notorious Ahole-Emohua axis of the East-West road.

This is coming as suspected pirates, armed with sophisticated weapons raided the Bakana Jetty on Thursday, after shooting sporadically to scare people and carted away seven boats.
Eyewitness report has it that Ekele was traveling in the convoy of the lawmaker representing Ahoada West Constituency in the Rivers House of Assembly, Augustine Wanaka Okpokori when they were ambushed by gunmen who opened fire on them killing Ekele, while scores of others sustained bullet wounds.
“In the melee, the hoodlums whisked away some of the passengers into the bush. The deceased lawmaker were returning to Port Harcourt after the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ward to ward campaign ahead of the general elections”.
The killing of the young politician has elicited anger among the Ekpeye Youth umbrella body who has called on the security agencies to overhaul the security along the East-West road, especially the Emohua stretch.
They also accused the policemen along that route of connivance. They also called on the youth leaders of Rumuji, Elele, Ndele, and Emohua to call their youths to order to avoid reprisal attacks, stating that the killing of the young Ekpeye politician was one too many in recent weeks and month.
In both incidents, the Rivers State Police Command has not made comments on both incidents.
In a related development, suspected Pirates, armed with sophisticated weapons raided the Bakana Jetty and carted away seven boats.
Confirming this incident in a telephone interview, the president of Bakana Federation, Francis Dick, narrated that the suspected pirates stormed the jetty after shooting sporadically, towed away from the speedboats anchored at the jetty.
