|Police Await Soboma George Autopsy Report by funny60: 10:42am On Sep 01, 2010|
THE Police are awaiting the autopsy report on the slain of former militant leader Soboma George as part of investigations into his August 24 murder.
The police said the report would facilitate their plan to declare the suspected killers wanted following the expiration of the 48-hour ultimatum given them to show up.
After George’s murder at the Old Port Harcourt Township, popularly called Town, his "boys" dragged his mangled body to the Abuja waterfront.
The body was later moved to a morgue in Town, where it was recovered by the police on August 27, following intelligence reports.
The Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba, on August 27, said a splinter group, from the Greenlanders cult group, led by a notorious robbery suspect, Pere, and his cohorts, Dombra and Tommy, killed George.
Abba noted that the suspects, currently at large, masterminded the killing of the MEND’s ex-leader.
The police boss said his command would intensify the manhunt for the suspects, whom he said, were lieutenants of the deceased before they severed ties with him. He said they also refused to collect their monthly ex-militants’ allowances through George.
The police chief added that the command would release George’s body to his family for burial after the autopsy.
Rivers police spokesperson, Mrs. Rita Inoma-Abbey, confirmed the move to declare the suspects wanted.
Also yesterday, a police Corporal, Vincent Andrew, lost his life in an attempt to prevent the kidnap of Reverend Olaka Osaronu and members of his family at Ebubu-Eleme, Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State. The deceased was the cleric’s orderly.
The whereabouts of the Managing Director of Devi Hotel in Port Harcourt, Mr. Kenneth Abali, who was kidnapped in the hotel premises yesterday, also remained unknown.
The kidnappers of the hotelier were yet to contact members of his family and had not demanded any ransom as at press time yesterday night
The attempt to kidnap the reverend took place at Commonwealth Church, a few minutes after a service. The cleric and members of his family fled into the bush, while the brave policeman confronted the kidnappers.
Mrs. Inoma-Abbey, who confirmed the development, said the slain cop was on special duty from the Police Mobile Force (PMF) Unit 1, Kaduna.
She stressed that policemen were on the trail of the kidnappers of Abali, assuring that the hotelier would soon regain his freedom.
Mrs Inoma-Abbey urged the public to give information about the suspects.
