Photo news : last nite attack in aluu community, Rivers state by unknown gunmen
It all started by 7pm , Friday night
It was learnt that the gunmen also invaded a superstore in Omuoda village, opened fire and killed many.
The bandits later advanced to Omuahunwo village and killed four of their victims who were suspected to be rival cultists.
The assailants were said to have carried out the coordinated attacked based on information that some members of the Icelanders were taking refuge in Aluu. The incident left the residents of the area in anxiety as some people in the affected communities fled their homes.
A source who spoke anonymously said, “Some cult members believed to be members of Greenlanders came to the community and killed some people. The boys operated in a very terrible manner. They went to a supermarket where people usually go to buy something and opened fire on over six people.
“Some people narrowly escaped with gun wounds. We do not know the cause of the killings, although we suspected that it is a cult war.’’
A source in Obite said, “At the moment, people are running away and nobody knows who is who. The cult boys entered the community by 8am and started shooting the people they described as their enemies.
“The Icelanders boys were the ones that shot the Degbam boys, but the fear now is that the Degbam group has written a letter to the community, asking the residents to flee because they are going to revenge.’’
Strangely, Rivers state Assistant Police PRO, Mrs Grace Iringe-Koko, said she had not been briefed..
