Gunmen behead DPO in Rivers

Armed men suspected to be cultists terrorizing parts of Rivers State have killed a Divisional Police Officer, DPO, identified as Bako Amgbanshin.

DAILY POST gathered that the unfortunate incident occurred on Friday night in Ahoada East Local Government Area of the State.

The assailants were said to have ambushed the DPO and his men while on an operation to raid some criminal hideouts in the Ahoada East axis.

The operatives had engaged the miscreants in a gun duel before the DPO was captured, killed and his body dismembered.

A viral video which surfaced on the Internet on Friday night revealed how Angbanshin’s head, hand and private part were cut off with several deep machete cuts.

In the video sighted by our correspondent, the gunmen chanted victory songs while his severed remains littered the floor.

When contacted by GISTS VILLA, the Police Public Relations Officer of the State, Grace Iringe Koko confirmed the incident but failed to give details.

In a chat with our correspondent, the PPRO simply said, “the report is true”.

She promised to revert with details.
