Gunmen kill 4 in Rivers State

Gunmen have invaded three local government areas of Rivers State, killing four persons, including two members of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in the state.
It was leant that the gunmen attacked some communities in Eleme and Gokana local government areas on Thursday, while they extended their operation to Ikwerre LGA on Saturday.

Speaking on the murder, the Caretaker Committee Chairman of Gokana LGA, Austin Sor, condemned the killings, and called on the police to apprehend the killers.
“On Thursday, one of the party stalwarts, a stakeholder, Mr. Lekia Nzeregara, was gunned down at Ogale in the Eleme LGA. His death is one of those too many to mention.
“We totally condemn that. Shortly after that, at about 6.30pm or 7pm, one of the youth leaders, Mr. Fred Teedom, who happened to be the youth leader of Bomu and the Vice Chairman of Ward 8, Gokana LGA, was also shot dead.
“I was told that those that shot him are the cult boys from that community. We also want the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to do their investigations and ensure that the culprits are brought to book,” Sor added.
In a related development, a group of hoodlums on Saturday also shot and killed two persons in Elele, in Ikwerre LGA.
Our reporter gathered that the gunmen, who were shooting sporadically, also abducted one person before escaping in a tinted car.
