Gunmen kill Rivers community leader, wife missing as daughter demands justice

A middle-aged lady has demanded justice for her father, Solomon Nwagbara, who she said was burnt to death by suspected members of a disbanded vigilance group in Omudioga community, in the Emuoha Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The lady, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told newsmen in Port Harcourt that she and her siblings fled the area in fear for their lives.

She also claimed that those who perpetrated the act kidnapped her mother, Priscilia, pointing out that the latter’s whereabouts was unknown.

She called on the government and security agencies to help find her mother.

The lady said her late father, who was suffering from a stroke, was a chief in the community, while her mother was a woman leader.

She insisted that her parents had nothing to do with cultism.

She said, “We got a call on Tuesday evening that our parents were in hiding. After a while, we called back their telephone lines, which did not go through.

“On Wednesday, we called and their telephone lines did not go through again. We went to their house on Thursday to find out what happened.

“When we got there, we saw the burnt remains of my dad there. The whole house was razed; my mother was nowhere to be found. Not even her body, like we saw her husband’s body.

“So, we have put him (late father) in a morgue; we are now looking for my mum. Let the police please help us comb the bushes and find my mother.

A spokesman for the Rivers State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, said he had yet to get a report on the incident, but promised to find out from the Divisional Police Officer in the area.

He had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.
