Sources within the intelligence circles inundated that the military arrived in summary as a result of sunday’s futile outcome of the raid of igbomoturu community,a harbor bay for the culprit and his fleeing cohorts.

One reliable source, “Since the MIlitary has come to the conclusion that Endurance Okodeh, alias Amangben, led his group to kill the soldiers, the best place to look for him is the Government House.”

“Amangben’s benefactor, Governor
Douye Diri, might have provided the Government House for him to hibernate in order to evade arrest by the troops searching for him.”
