Police arrest vigilante members over manslaughter

Three members of the Rumuolumeni Security Planning and Advisory Committee, ROSPAC have been arrested by the operatives of the Rivers State Police Command for assault of Clifford Woko.

Local sources said the operatives invaded the office of ROSPAC at Nkpor village, Rumuolomeni in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state and arrested the trio.

Woko said he was assaulted by the ROSPAC members for his failure to pay ‘matching ground fee’ on the construction site that was in his care.

He later reported the attack to the Human Rights Desk at the Rivers State Police Command Headquarters which invited the ROSPAC members on three occasions but they declined to honour invitations.

Nnamdi Omoni, the Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, said the suspects were arrested over a report of manslaughter against them.

He said police operatives went to their office and arrested three of them, while others took to their heels.
