At least six persons have been arrested over the murder of Rivers DPO, SP Bako Angbashim. 
 
The suspects were arrested by the Rivers State police command.
 
We had earlier reported that Bako was killed in the Odiemudie Community in the Ahoada East Local Government Area (LGA) of the state during a shootout with some cultists in the area.
 
A statement released on the spokesperson of the command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko, says the state Commissioner of Police for Rivers State, CP Nwonyi Emeka Polycarp, along with his management team and tactical units, conducted an operation on Saturday, September 9, 2023, at approximately 0600hrs in Odumude Community, Ahaoda East LGA, Rivers State with the objective to recover the deceased DPO's body and conduct an on-the-spot assessment of the community.
 
She said during this operation, six suspects were apprehended within the community. Among the items seized were a locally crafted pistol and various charms. These suspects and the confiscated items are currently under police custody and are undergoing interrogation at the State CID, Port Harcourt. As a result of these developments, the community has been evacuated by its residents.
 
Furthermore, a new DPO, SP Zuokumor Richard, has been assigned to the division. He is accompanied by half a unit of men from Mopol 48, one-third unit from Mopol 19, 56, and tactical teams. He has been tasked with a thorough search of the area, apprehension of the culprits responsible for the DPO's demise, recovery of the body, and location of any operational weapons used. This operation will continue while the investigation remains ongoing.
