The Director for Youths Mobilization Officer, Atiku/Okowa campaign team in Rivers State, Rhino Owhorkire, has been shot by gunmen.
Owhorkire was allegedly shot while going home in Aluu, Ikwerre Local Government Area of the State on Wednesday, according to The PUNCH.
Recall, that in November, Owhorkire was allegedly kidnapped and seen in a viral video in a cave-like location denouncing support for Atiku under duress.
In a viral video which surfaced on the internet, Owhorkire was seen, with tick blood dripping heavily from his injured mouth, while his nose and the spot above his upper lip were swollen, as he muttered some words repeatedly and tried to hold his lips with his hands.
He said, “I am dying. They shot me now. I am dying, they have shot me.”
The State Commissioner of Police, Okon Effion, had ordered an investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident and promised that those behind the act would be apprehended.
The spokesperson of the Rivers state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, also confirmed the incident, saying an investigation has commenced.
She said, “Yes, it happened. I have spoken with the Divisional Police Officer in that area. We are working to get the details, but I can tell you that investigation has commenced.
“We will get to the root of the matter and fish out those behind the attack and ensure they face justice.”
