Chaos as Rivers drivers protest colleague's killing

11 November 2015, 17:17

Rivers - Rivers State Deputy Governor, Ipalibo Harry Banigo, has called for calm in the region after a soldier allegedly shot dead a commercial bus driver at the Rumuokoro axis in Port Harcourt.

She said military authorities and other security agencies were investigating the incident.

Banigo urged investigators to get to the root of the matter as no one had the right to take the life of another.

She described the death of the bus driver as unfortunate.

Banigo consoled the family of the deceased and appealed to commercial bus drivers in the State to go about their daily activities as well as avoid acts that would breach the peace of the state.

She reiterated the determination of the government to protect lives and property of Rivers people and ensure a conducive working environment for all law abiding citizens as well as investors to pursue their legitimate businesses in the area.

There has been pandemonium at the Rumuokoro community in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state following a protest over the killing of the driver by the unidentified soldier.

The incident was said to have occurred this past weekend as the commercial driver was reportedly shot for allegedly failing to heed to an instruction not to drive against traffic.
