Community storms police station with monarch's corpse

24 July 2016, 10:03

Abuja - Member of the Barako community in the Gakana LGA of Rivers State allegedly stormed the State Police Command on Saturday carrying the corpse of their murdered chief, Punch reports.

Chief Levi Ndorbu Korgbara was allegedly shot on Friday while on his way to the Police Divisional Headquarters in Kpor.

The community, angered by the death of their leader, took the remains of the chief to the Police Headquarters in Port Harcourt where they lamented security officials' complicity in the matter.

Community spokesperson Kimanyieke Kiesop voiced the position of his community, claiming that residents are unhappy about the circumstance under which the chief was murdered.

Kiesop has revealed the community's belief that the chief, who had died following an invitation bestowed onto him by police, would have still been alive had it not been for security officials wanting him to attend a meeting in Kpor, The Nation reports.

“The police invited our chief for a peace talk, but on his way, he was killed by gunmen. We perceive that the police are working with our enemy community to be killing us. We decided to bring the corpse to the command so that the world will know what we are going through. Last week Tuesday (July 12), they killed our village town crier and the police were aware, but they did not do anything. This is how they have been killing our people and nothing has been done by the police to resolve the crisis,” Kesiop said.

Nnamdi Omoni, police spokesman in the state, has since denied that police are on the side of a rival community in the area.
