APC Condemns Rivers, Kwara, Kaduna New Year Attacks

The gunmen are said to have fired at random, killing some at close range.

The party said the attack in Taiwo Isale area of Ilorin, Kwara State and Omoku community in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State, which led to deaths of many is gruesome and barbaric.

Our reporter learnt that over 26 people were shot in the attack and while 16 died on the spot, 10 sustained bullet wounds. The injured were brought to the hospital where they are undergoing treatment.

The Rivers State Police Command described the incident as unfortunate, adding that the culprits would be fished out.

Reacting to the attack, a member of the house of representatives, representing Ahoada West, Ogba-Egbema Ndoni Federal Constituency, Ukechukwu Nam-Obi, said it was unthinkable how people could unleash such wickedness on their fellow humans.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but suspicion falls on an armed group believed to be behind kidnappings and killings in the area. This is an act that must be condemned.

"The good people of Omoku have suffered enough and this has dealt a further blow on their sufferings".

"I have said it time and again that Governor Wike lacks the capacity and competence to guarantee the safety and security of the Rivers people".
