Soala West Killed By Suspected Herdsmen In Rivers by WonderManly(m): 6:57am On Mar 20
A former governorship aspirant in Rivers State, Soala West, was on Wednesday killed by suspected herdsmen in the Aluu community, Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

Soala, who hailed from the Akuku-Toru Local Government Area of the state, was said to be inspecting his poultry farm in Aluu on March 12, 2020, when he was abducted and taken away to an unknown destination.

His corpse was found on Wednesday around 6pm.

The deceased’s elder brother, Emmanuel, expressed shock over the death of the politician in the hands of the suspected herdsmen.

According to him, Soala had gone to inspect his poultry farm in Aluu when he was whisked away by the herdsmen, who brandished AK-47 rifles.

It was learnt that Soala’s captors had earlier demanded N30m as ransom from his relatives, but later reduced it to N2.5 million.

Though it could not be ascertained if the ransom was paid, Soala’s captors killed the former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party barely a week after he was taken away.

“This is shocking to us. We don’t know why they should kill our brother this way. Our entire family has been thrown into mourning. We just hope that the police will arrest all those involved in the killing of our brother,” Emmanuel said.

Several calls to the state Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, were not answered, while a text message sent to his mobile phone for confirmation of the incident had not been replied to as of the time of filing this report.

This is so sad.

But my annoyance is, Why do we keep addressing a blood hungry group as suspected?

What is Suspected about a blood thirsty Demons

Why not call it what it is and deal with it squarely. What is going on in this country

This shouldn't be ascribe to suspected Fulani herdsmen, The killing is not any different from the usual cult related killings, which Rivers State is notorious for.

But come OP, is Engr Segun Oni related to the deceased or why attaching his pic to your news ?

But on a serious note, I've been looking for one good thing buhari has done right in this country, I've not seem to find any.
The mess this administration has created, I swear even the next generation won't be able to clean it up completely.
But one funny thing is that even if he still decides to run for a third term, some mumu idiots will still vote for him. I swear the person wey do Nigeria this thing don die since. There's no "mmekwatarism".

Osidazz19:

For all we know the killers might even be members of his family for financial reasons. Nigerian journalists are just bunch of slow lazy idiots perpetrating a narrative with any ounce of evidence.

If they had claimed that he was killed by a suspected member of Ipob, all those hailing this type of junk journalism will be ask for prove and evidence. But now, no evidence is required since it only concerns the Fulanis.

CoolVoice:
May his gentle soul rest in Peace.

I think the media should stop misleading people.. this is kidnapping case by kidnappers in that rejoin. There is no herdsmen kidnapping in Rivers State. Every one in Rivers knows Kidnapping in Rivers is a big problem and it's not new.

So the media should desist from creating and inciting tribal and ethnic divide among the people.

AnanseK:

This post is meant to incite the gullible and imbeciles like you, when cult killers and political assassins pretend to be Herdsmen.

When the needful ought to be done, the ought begins to be done, when there is no tradition of compliance to the mandatory guidance law of the land why will news be well regulated

Some will say this can't be Fulani doings but the law does not allow for any civilians to move around with guns even in a civil organization

The killings made by the fulani especially when they retailate a village the reaction speak more of the name in which they hide under disguising as cow herder with motive Known to their mindset

Go ask Ghana whether there's any civilians allow to move with guns except the police man
