A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ofinijite Amachree pictured above, was burnt alive in Buguma, Asari-Toru local government of Rivers state on Monday, March 7. A source disclosed this to The Nation: “We don’t really know what caused the fight; but what we know is that it is a clash between the APC and PDP. There were gunshots; so, we had to take cover in our house. 

One guy, popularly known as Kpom Kpom, who I think is an APC member was killed and burnt. As I speak with you, there is tension in Buguma.” Amachree was beaten up and burnt as four others also lost their lives. According to reports, four APC members were killed in Obibi, Etche local government, while Gabriel Cookey was smashed to death in Opobo, headquarters of Opobo/Nkoro. 

It was also gathered that the mother of the caretaker committee chairman of Asari-Toru local government, Sobomabo Jackrich, was abducted by armed men on Sunday, March 6 around Obiri Ikwerre Bridge, Port Harcourt. Police spokesman Ahmad Muhammad confirmed the incident. 

However, Muhammad said normalcy had returned to the area following the response of security operatives. He said: “On Saturday’s killings in Omoku, no arrest has been made yet, but it is under investigation. “There was a report of security breach in Buguma, but normalcy has been restored, due to the intervention by our men. I do not have any report on killings in Opobo and Obibi-Etche, for now (at 3:49 pm).” The murder of Amachree took place barely 48 hours after APC’s Ward 4 chairman in Omoku, headquarters of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Franklin Obi, was beheaded at his home by masked gunmen at 9 pm. His wife and 18-year-old son, Bestman, were also killed.
