Rivers DPO redeployed Over Leaked Video Of Interrogation Of  Wanted 2Baba Colleague


LAGOS OCTOBER 1ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The Divisional Police Officer of Ahoada in Rivers State, SP Zuokumor Richard has been redeployed just about 21 days after he was posted to the division over the leakage of video of the interrogation of a suspect arrested over the murder of the former DPO of the division, SP Bako Angbashim.

Police sources revealed that CSP Adewale Nureni took over from SP Richard who was posted to head the Ahoada Division on Friday 29th September, 2023, a day after the murder of Angbashim.

The late DPO was allegedly murdered by members of the Iceland cult gang led by one Gift David Okpara, alias 2 Baba, who has been declared wanted by the Rivers State government and the Police.

Sources close to the Police Command confided in PM NEWS that the sudden replacement of Ahoada DPO was due to the recent leakage of videos of the interrogation of suspects linked to the murder of SP Angbashim.

It was learnt that police authorities were angry because confessions of the suspects in the leaked video can sabotage further investigation and arrest of fleeing suspects, especially of the prime Gift David Okpara aka 2Baba.

Recall that three days ago, two separate videos of Police Officers interrogating suspects linked to the killing of SP Angbashim surfaced online, a development which some security analysts criticized.

Rivers Commissioner of Police, CP Nwonyi Emeka, had on September 9, 2023, announced the posting of Zuokumor Richard as the new DPO of Ahoada Police Division with a clear mandate to ensure the arrest of 2 Baba and members of his gang members as soon as possible.

To help him accomplish the task a half unit of Mopol 48, one third unit of men from Mopol 19, one third unit of Mopol 56 and operatives of tactical units of the police were deployed with him to the Ahoada Division.

Last Wednesday, a 33-year-old man said to be the native doctor of 2 Baba was arrested by the police.

This followed the earlier arrest of a member of the gang whose interrogation video led to the exit of SP Richard from the Ahoada Division.

The native doctor, it was claimed, was responsible for preparing charms that fortified 2 Baba and his gang to be immune to gunshots and evade arrests from security agencies.

Though the spokesperson for the Rivers State Police Command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko has not responded to inquiries on the redeployment of SP Richard, sources said CSP Nureni assumed duty at Ahoada on Friday, September 30, 2023.
