COURT REFUSES FELIX OBUAH’S APPLICATION SEEKING TO STOP POLICE FROM INVITING HIM OVER KILLINGS IN OMOKU



   

A high court sitting in Port Harcourt has refused the application of Felix Obuah, who sought the court to stop the police from inviting him to answer questions over killings in Omoku, before, after, and during the 2015 elections.

The court presided by Justice Adolphus Enebeli, denied the application, stating that the police have every right to invite whoever it wants to invite in course of an investigation. Felix Obuah is the state chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Sole Administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA).


Prior to the 2015 elections, natives of Omoku in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area could not return home, and many residents were fled the oil rich town following incessant killings by gang members. The killings continued in the area during the elections, and after the elections.


On the 1st of January, 2018, more than a score of people were killed in Omoku. The mass murder was believed to have been perpetrated by a gang, led by Ejima Igwedibia (Don Waney). Security officers have since killed Don Waney and some of his principal officers. Some other gang leaders wanted by the state government have pleaded for Amnesty.
