6 Persons Allegedly Killed in Community in Rivers
Six people from Kporgor Community in Tai Local Government Area of Rivers State have been shot dead by unknown gunmen. Reasons for the killing are still unknown.

A man who claimed his wife and son were also killed said: “I was not around when it happened but before I came down I saw that my wife and son were shot dead. So, I had to rush and looked for security. I am also using this medium to appeal for people to come to my aid due to the condition I am into now.”

The Chairman of Tai Local Government, Agabe Alelo while speaking to newsmen condemned the killings in strong terms.

Alelo alleged that the unidentified gunmen came from a neighbouring community called Wakama in Ogu/Bolo Local Government of the State.

“Before this time, there has been a communal clash between the Wakama of Ogu/Bolo local government area and Kporgor community of Tai local government area. It was there they moved from Wakama and came and shot in my area. For now six people are confirmed dead, “Alelo said.
He also said security men have been deployed to the area to ensure the safety of lives and properties after the shooting.

“The police had been duly informed. I have contacted MOPOL 56 and I have also informed the commissioner of police through the police public relations officer. For now there is intensive patrol,” he added.

Meanwhile the police is yet to reveal identities of the six people allegedly killed in the area.
