The new commander in charge of Rumuokoro Army Barracks in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital has given 8 communities in Emohua Local Government Area (Rivers State), one-week to fish out and surrender the gunmen, who allegedly ambushed and shot dead a soldier and police officer in the area.
According to Vanguard report, a nameless source claimed that the commander stormed Emohua with three vehicles, fully loaded with fierce-looking military men and drove straight to the palace of the paramount ruler of Emohua Kingdom, HRM, Eze V.C. Okor, where he handed down the ultimatum.
The source said, ”During the visit, the brigade commander gave the eight communities of Emohua one-week ultimatum to produce the killers of the officers, otherwise the communities will face the wrath of the command”.
Residents have begun to flee the area while those staying back are scared they will be attacked by the military. The Paramount ruler of Emohua kingdom has called on the government to promptly intervene in the matter and ensure that justice was no breakdown of law and order.
