Governor Wike places a N200 million bounty for information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators of the Omoku New Year eve massacre in which about 17 people were reportedly killed by unknown gunmen.
Speaking on Tuesday after visiting some the families of the deceased, the governor said, “Anybody who is connected to this crime in any way will have his/her houses forfeited to the Government. This place has been peaceful before this unfortunate mayhem… We will not allow another case of this violence. We have mobilised the security agencies to take the battle to the perpetrators “.
At the sites of the crime where he received a briefing from the Nigerian Police Area Commander, Mr Mike Nwafor and the Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni (ONELGA) Local Government Council Caretaker Chairman, Mr Olisa Osi, the governor reiterated his resolve to uncover the perpetrators of this heinous crime, “You cannot shed innocent blood and go free. We are working with all the security agencies to do everything possible to arrest the perpetrators. They must pay for this”, he said.
Some of the survivors narrated how their love ones were taken out of their homes and murdered in cold blood.
