No fewer than 15 mobile policemen have been killed in the last three weeks in three separate armed robbery attacks and several millions of naira carted away by bandits in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Troubled by the spate of violent robberies in the last 21 days, Governor Rotimi Amaechi vowed through his Media Manager, Mr. David Iyofor, that he would surmount the brigandage through every available means open to the government.

In one of the attacks, eight policemen escorting a bullion van from Port Harcourt International Airport to a commercial bank in the city were wiped out and the bullion van ransacked.

In that incident, Vanguard gathered that five of the armed rogues, who were dressed in mobile police uniform, were seen hanging at Rukpoku Junction and patronised an orange seller.

The thieves, it was learnt, were even seen chatting with a group of other policemen on guard duty with their stationary van at the junction before the van and police escorts from the airport arrived the spot.

As the bullion van got to the junction, it was alleged that it developed a fault and stopped, following which some members of the brigands, also in security uniform, who were driving behind the convoy from the airport promptly opened fire.

Those who were with the orange sellers joined in the shooting, killing all the escorts, the drivers and some of those on guard, including three civilians and made away with their loot. The police said N5.6 million was later recovered in the bullion van.

    it is quite unfortunate am not worried about d money they made away with but my concern is over innocent citizens dat was killed. no wonder all dat glitters is not a gold. Dat they appear in police uniform does not imply dat they are police. Effort should be done to prevent dis kind of ugly incident from happenin again blc dis is ember months pple are out 2 make money for d christmax.

    May their soul RIP. Those policemen that were on guard should be quizzed. How can some people that are not policemen mix up with u, without u identifying them. They should always be agile. I remember when a police ASP officer was held by a subordinate, just bcos he failed to produce his ID card. This is what’s expected of them. Challenge a stranger on uniform to know if he’s truly an officer.

    You see, dis showz how insecure and dangerous d lives of d citizens of dis our great nation and perhaps d police how deep they slept.why would u not be able to identify a true 4rm false officer? Pls if it is difficult for police force or officers 2 fish out d camelons (the backbiters who disclose d police’s loopholes ) But d pains part is dat innocent citizens fall victim. Howeva, police should be given adequate training by d NPF Commission.

As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
