The Rivers State Police Command has made a significant breakthrough in their investigation into the gruesome murder of Mr Bako Angbashim, a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Ahoada East Local Government Area of Rivers State.

As a result, six suspects were arrested during the search operation conducted by the police.

The command spokesperson, Grace Iringe-Koko, confirmed the arrests and stated that ammunition and charms were found in possession of the suspects. The arrested individuals are currently undergoing interrogation at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department in Port Harcourt.
