The rivers state police command has disagreed with reports from Kereken community in ogoni, Khana LGA over the number of persons killed up until yesterday.
The police spokesman Nnamdi Omoni said that is not the true reflection of what happened in KHANA yesterday where the cult boys invaded the community and attacked the villagers, we were able to identify 5 corpses but one later dies in the hospital and all together we have 6 verifiable and identifiable corpses, so the information that about 28 persons died is not verifiable and not true.
If anybody saw the corpses of the 28 persons he should alert the police, it’s not enough to just dish out figures without proofs, they should send pictures of the corpse,
What actually happened?
OMONI: what happened is that particular cults group invade Kerekan community in Khana Local government area in the state in a reprisal attack and killed the persons we recovered their corpse. Investigation has been ordered by the commissioner of police to investigate what happened and at the end of the investigation we would unveil what happened.
However, Reports coming in from Kereken Community of Khana Local Government, has it that no fewer than 28 persons have feared dead, following gunmen invasion of the community on Thursday morning.
A source within the community who alerted us of the invasion said the gunmen, numbering over ten stormed the restive community in the early hours of Thursday, shooting anything on sight, animal, human beings before they all took to their heels into the nearby bushes.
Confirming the incident, the Councilor Representing Ward 13, in the Khana Legislative Assembly, Confidence Leera Nekabari, said the community has been deserted.
Nekabari, while calling on security agencies to come to aid the community, expressed fear that the killings may continue, if nothing is done to avert the carnage.
Meanwhile after the carnage police says only six was killed in the incidents.
