Gunmen Kill one in Tere-Ama, another at Ogbunu-abali

Gunmen on Wednesday invaded Tere-Ama community in the Port Harcourt Local Government Area of Rivers State and reportedly killed one person.

A resident in the area who only identified himself as Somieri said the attack may be connected to their regular extortion of business owners in the area.

Recall that Chief Tamunokuro Somiari, the paramount ruler of Somieri-Ama community, a neighbouring town had raised an alarm over a threat to his life after some gunmen attacked him at his house.

Meanwhile a youth has been reported dead after a shootout between rival cult groups at Ogbunu-abali on Tuesday evening.

When contacted, the spokesman of the Rivers State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the incident, adding the Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, had ordered an investigation into the incidents with a view to arresting the perpetrators and unraveling the crime.

Omoni further disclosed that the corpse of the victim at Tere-Ama has been handed over to his family for burial.
