Some gunmen who are suspected to be cultists have gone on rampage, killing at least five persons in the Ahoada area of Rivers State.
The incident occurred on Sunday morning when the armed men reportedly invaded the Odiemerenyi Community in Ahoada East Local Government Area and opened fire on unsuspecting residents.
Details of the incident were still sketchy as at the time of filing this report.
When contacted by DAILY POST, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Grace Iringe-Koko, simply said, “I will get back to you on this, please”.
However, a source alleged that the killers were members of the wanted Iceland cult group who killed the DPO of Ahoada Police Division, SP. Bako Angbashim.
It was gathered that the criminal element earlier ambushed a police patrol van but missed their target before invading the community and killing the victims.
