The Rivers State Police Command said on Saturday that it had commenced manhunt for gunmen, who killed six persons and burnt the house of a politician in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Ahmed Muhammad, said this in Port Harcourt during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Muhammed, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said the gunmen attacked Obrikom and Obor communities, killing six persons and injuring two others.

He said they also burnt the house of Mr Vincent Ogbagu, the All Progressives Congress House of Assembly candidate for the Local Government Area.

“At about 7:30 pm yesterday (April 3), some unknown armed men invaded Obrikom and Obor communities and went on a shooting spree. They killed six and injuring two persons.

“They also set ablaze the house of Vincent Ogbagu, an APC House of Assembly candidate,” he said.

Muhammad said the police had commenced investigation into the incident with a view to bring its perpetrators to book.

“We appeal to the public to assist in making available, credible information in this respect,” he said. (NAN)
