April 11 Governorship Election: Gunmen Kill 9 In Rivers State

At least nine persons have been killed and two others injured after gunmen stormed two communities in Rivers State in Nigeria’s south-south.

In a statement, the Police spokesman in Rivers State, Mr Ahmad Muhammad, said the armed men went on a shooting spree, in Obrikom and Obor communities.

Mr Muhammad said that six persons died immediately after the attack while three more victims died hours later.

According to him, the assailants also set ablaze the house of a local politician, Vincent Ogbagu, who is a state parliament candidate in the April 11 election.

Obrikom and Obor are neighbouring communities in Rivers State.

The attack came after a curfew imposed in Rivers State to contain unrest after the opposition disputed results from last weekend’s Presidential and National Assembly elections was lifted on Thursday.

The government imposed the curfew after thousands of opposition supporters descended on the electoral office in the state capital Port Harcourt on Sunday and Monday to demand a rerun of the vote.

They claimed no election was held in the state, but the electoral body said it had investigated their claims and found out that there were not enough reasons for it to consider the cancellation of the elections in the state.
