by on October 24, 2016
There was palpable ten­sion over the weekend among the residents of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital following the killing of two persons in­cluding a five-year-old girl by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police during a raid on cult gangs engaged in violent battle along the Ekeki Community of the Yenagoa Local Government Council.
According to Residents of the area, though the Spe­cial Anti-Robbery squad re­sponded to the distress calls on the cult related violence in the area, they left three innocent persons dead with one shot in the ribs but could not arrest any of the rival cult gangs engaged in bloody battle.
It was gathered that the incident, which occurred at about 4pm on Saturday, threw the residents of Ekeki and adjourning streets into panic as loud gunshot ex­changes were heard from the area.
A resident, who identi­fied himself as Kingsley, said those shot dead by the superior fire power of the police were a 30-year-old man popularly known as Inyan and a five-year- old girl identified as Godsgift Odoku.
