Men of the Rivers State Police Command have killed a suspected notorious armed robber and cult leader, Silas Oderereke, in Oderereke community in Ahoada-West LGA.
In a statement, the command’s spokesperson, SP Grace Iringe Koko, who disclosed that the gang leader had been on the run for the past four years, said his reign of terror came to an end when he resisted arrest and opened fire on the police; a development that resulted in his death.
Koko explained that as the head of the Greenlanders cult group in Ubie Clan of Ahoada West, Oderereke and his gang were infamous for their criminal activities which included armed robbery, land grabbing, unauthorised sales of buildings and brutal attacks on those who dared to oppose them.
She said the cult leader would order the destruction of houses in communities that resisted his criminal enterprises. (Dailytrust)
