Angbashim, a Superintendent of Police, was killed on September 8, 2023, during a Police operation against members of a notorious cult gang at Odiemude community in Ahoada-East local government area of the state.
Governor Siminalayi Fubara had immediately placed a ₦100million bounty on the leader of the gang, Gift Okpara, popularly known as 2Baba, while the Police officially declared members of the gang wanted.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, arrested member of the gang was seen trapped in a tyre and surrounded by policemen, who were questioning him on the killing of Angbashim.
Recall that the suspect was seen in another video posted about one week ago, brandishing an AK-47 assault rifle with fully loaded magazines in the forest alongside his group members.
However, the Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Grace Iringe-Koko, has assured that the Police Command will furnish journalists with full details of the arrest of the suspect.
