Unknown gunmen terrorising Bodo, a community in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State, reportedly killed a man on Monday.

The hoodlums are reported to have invaded the community following a planned protest on Monday by indigenes of the community over the controversy that led to the killing of two youths from the area a few weeks ago.

The victims were killed by gunmen at a pipeline surveillance site but one of their targets escaped with a bullet injury.

An indigene of the community who confirmed the incident to DAILY POST said the armed criminals shot sporadically in the community after killing one of their targets before escaping into a nearby bush on Monday morning.

Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Nwonyi Emeka, last week held a stakeholders meeting where he directed the paramount ruler of Bodo to return and take over the affairs of the community.

The directive by the police commissioner has been rejected by some members of the community.

In the meantime, some indigenes of the community appear to be resolved in their decision to protest against the insecurity in their land and against the directive of the CP.

Women, men, youths, and other stakeholders were seen gathered in a town square in the community.
