Three wounded cultists who were on their way to meet a herbalist after a bloody shootout with rival group in Bayelsa State, have been nabbed by the Chairman, Bayelsa State Volunteers.
The cultists who killed a member of a rival group during a shootout at Saint Peters Church axis, Yenagoa, in the early hours of Friday 31st of August 2018, reportedly fled the scene of the incident with bullet wounds to Ikolo village.
They were reportedly chased to their hideout in Ikolo village by the Chairman in company of some of Special Squad and Police men attached to the State Volunteers, and were caught inside a room while others ran into the bush.
The corpse of a young man whose body was hurriedly buried in a shallow grave across the river opposite the Federal Medical Centre was exhumed for proper autopsy, following the arrest of the three young men who crossed the river Nun to meet their herbalist so as to extract the bullets lodged in their bodies.
While the body of Kali Dede has since been deposited in the FMC mutuary as ordered by the State Police Anti-Cultism Department, a unit under SARS, Hon. Asanakpo has advised citizens of the state to cooperate with the agency by providing the needed information about crime and criminality any where in the state.
The Chairman who disclosed that peace and security is very paramount to economic growth, and that can only be achieved if we all support the government in ensuring the safety of life and properties, stated that the government of Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson will not condone any acts of criminality, hence his massive investment in the security infrastructure in Bayelsa state.
According to him, the essence of this investment is to attract investors and tourists to the state, thereby improve the internally generated revenue of the state. Here are more photos below;
