In Rivers: Suspected hoodlums attack palace, destroy cars, others

Suspected cultists have attacked the Palace of the Paramount Ruler of Elele in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, His Royal Majesty, Jonathan Amadi with his official car set ablaze during the operation.

Other property including a coastal bus belonging to the Chairman of the Community Development Committee were also burnt down in an attack believed to have been carried out by the same hoodlums.

The Elele CDC chairman, Ezekiel Chikwere who confirmed the attack to our correspondent said his property and that of the Paramount ruler were touched because of their position against cultists and other gangs in the community.

While lamenting the destruction of his property, Chikwere revealed that the attack came one week after he summoned suspected cultists for a peace meeting following the arrival of local security outfit, OSPAC in the community.

The leader of Ikwerre-Etche Youth Forum, Gideon Okpaka who led security operatives to the scene of the incident condemned the attack, just as he expressed readiness to work with security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of the act are brought to book.

When contacted, Spokesman of the Command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni said he was expecting a brief from the DPO, Elele.  Dailypost
