The father of the Executive Director of the Rivers State Sustainable Development Agency (RSSDA), Amasenibo Lawrence Pepple, was among those killed in the attack.

The Chairman of Bonny Local Government Area, Mr Simon Emmanuel Hart, condemned the attack, describing it as criminal and wicked.

Hart, who was represented by the council Secretary, Helen Jack-Wilson Pepple, urged the police to investigate the incident and, together with other security agencies, ensure that the culprits are arrested.
