Police death leads to violent backlash

– Bokolo Nimiteinbofa

At approximately 5.50pm yesterday, one mobile policeman was killed as unknown gunmen attacked the mobile police at Opiama bridge along the Ogbia-Nembe road, Bayelsa State. Following the attack, the mobile police sent reinforcements to the site and they started brutalising all drivers of motorbikes, cars and other passengers travelling the route.

Dr. Saturday – a medical professional working with the general hospital – was also beaten and brutalised on his way to his station from Yenagoa.
