12 Jan Church Worshippers Were Not The Target, Omoku Killers Reveal
The Nigerian Police Force headquarters yesterday, paraded a notorious armed robber and kidnapper who was involved in the New Year killing of Church worshippers at Omoku, Rivers State.
The 32-year-old suspect, Desmond Okotubo, who is a father of three and hails from Egbenma in Unelga Local Government Area of Rivers State, told newsmen that “the arrest and humiliation of the mother of their leader, Don Wanny coupled with the destruction of Wanny’s mansions in the state informed the New Year attack in Omoku.”
Desmond Okotubo, who disclosed that their plan to invade Omoku was hatched in Owerri, Imo State, said Omoku vigilante group members were their original targets and not church worshippers.
He further disclosed that their decision to vent their anger on the worshippers came when they could not track down the vigilante group members, who he said were instrumental to the arrest of Don Wanny’s mother and tracing of his mansions for destruction by government.
