Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has vowed that the criminals responsible for the gruesome murder of the Ahoada Divisional Police Officer, SP Bako Angbashim, will be brought to book.
He made the vow on Sunday morning shortly after a State Security Council meeting with all Service Chiefs in the State.
SP Angbashim was murdered by suspected cultists terrorizing the Ahoada East and West local government areas of the state on Friday.
His assailants dismembered him after he was ambushed on his way back from a mission in Ahoada.
The governor held the State Security Council meeting to address the urgency created by the gruesome murder of the DPO.
Fubara said shortly after the meeting, “This morning, we held an emergency security meeting to tackle the urgency created by the gruesome murder of SP Bako Angbashim, the DPO of Ahoada, by some miscreants.
“We have taken further steps by asking the security agencies to smoke out the miscreants by any means so as to keep our state safe for all law-abiding citizens.
“We must get him (killer of SP Bako) dead or alive” as “we would not rest until whoever is responsible for this act is brought to book.”
DAILY POST reports that the people of Ahoada are now living in fear after the murder of Angbashim, an officer who they believed brought some level of sanity and security to the area after he was deployed from Ogoni in 2023.
