The Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has condemned the gruesome murder of SP Bako Angbashim, who was the Divisional Police Officer, Ahoada Division in Rivers State.
The slain DPO was humiliated, gruesomely murdered, and mutilated by some hardened armed criminals in Ahoada area of Rivers State on Friday, 8th September, 2023, while on operation in the area.
The IGP in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, ACP, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, however, ordered immediate investigation, arrest, and prosecution of all the culprits that carried out the heinous and barbaric act; adding that such an act is not only an affront on our national status, but also a reflection of a lack of patriotism and gross illegality.
The IGP, while emphasizing unequivocally that such nefarious acts against any operative in Nigeria, will not be taken with levity as all the perpetrators will be caused to face the full wrath of the law, extends his deepest condolences to the grieving family, dedicated colleagues and friends of SP Bako Angbashim urging them to embody his dedication, humility, and selflessness.
Recall that in a similar development, Governor Siminalayi Fubara has declared wanted and placed a N100m bounty on one 2Baba, an Iceland Cult leader and his gang members who gruesomely murdered SP Bako Angbashim, DPO Ahoada Division.
He also slammed indefinite suspension of King Cassidy Ikegbidi for his complicity and ceding his territory to the cult leader to setup camp and terrorizing innocent citizens.
