With two days to the rerun elections into the Rivers State House of Assembly, the two opposition parties in the country, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the All Progressives Congress (APC), are at daggers drawn with the way the once peaceful state has been turned into a battle field with many killed and maimed in the process.
The latest victim is a 28-year-old man identified as Ukeoma who was beheaded early today when gunmen stormed the Mgbuitanwo community in Emohua Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that the hoodlums attacked the community as early as 5:30am and shot sporadically into the air to scare the people. They made their way to the home of the victim where the attacked him before he was beheaded.
Not satisfied with their bloodletting, the gunmen were said to have abducted another man identified as Eruchi and took him to a yet-to-be ascertained destination.
The mode of operation, according to eyewitnesses, was similar to that of the attack that led to the recent killing and beheading of the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Ward 4 in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area, Franklin Obi, and two members of his family.
