Following the assassination of a preacher, Abraham Yorka, the Rivers State Police Command said its agents have been deployed in Afam and Oloko towns in the state’s Oyigbo and Tai Local Government Areas, respectively.
Friday Eboka, the state Commissioner of Police, revealed this over the phone while addressing questions from our correspondent, saying the police have a lead on one of those responsible for the attack on the Oloko village last Thursday.
Yorka was reportedly shot dead by gunmen thought to be members of a local vigilante group who attacked the Oloko hamlet in Tai LGA, shooting and burning houses irregularly.
A resident of the Oloko community, Monday Pitt, had told journalists that the attack took place when youths of the community went for lunch after working on their farmland which bordered Afam.
“We were clearing our road from Oloko to Afam. Some women were on the farm working. Suddenly, we heard the women shouting from the other side.
“I asked what was happening; we saw these people with different rifles shooting. I was with my motorcycle. So I left it and ran. Those boys burnt it to ashes, shot people, machete people, and burnt houses.
“Some corpses are there. Some of our people are still missing. We discovered one corpse for now. Others are missing,” he stated.
