Reps member, Dekor decries killing of Ahoada DPO

Slain SP Bako Angbashim

A House of Representatives member, representing Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency, Mr. Dumnamene Dekor, has decried the barbaric killing of the Ahoada Divisional Police Officer, DPO, SP Bako Angbashim, who lost his life on line of duty over the weekend in the hands of a criminal gang in Ahoada-East Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Lamenting the loss of the gallant crime fighter, who, before his recent deployment to Ahoada Division of the Nigeria Police early this year, was the Divisional Police Officer in Bori, Ogoni, Dekor said the death of Bako was not only a loss to the Nigeria Police, but a calamity to Rivers State and humanity in general.

He described Bako as a rare species among his peers, who saw crime fighting as a task and hobby to free mankind from the satanic tendencies of men of the underworld and undesirable elements in society and accordingly, distinguished himself in his belief and professional duty.

Dekor in a statement by his media team, said: “It takes generations to produce men and officers of his kind anywhere in the world.”

The currently House Reps Committee Chairman of Host Communities in the House of Representatives said, the Ogonis, Khana and Gokana Local Government Areas in particular have lost a beloved brother, and friend, noting that the relative peace and calm in Ogoniland today was sequel to Bako’s hard stance and fight against all manner of criminality in Ogoni land.

He regretted that the agents of darkness and their sponsors, who were enemies of peace, order and general well-being of the people have at last succeeded in killing love, courage and the joy of the people.

Most regrettably, Dekor noted, was the manner and way these cursed and deranged elements butchered a man that had sacrificed his life on countless occasions to save even the lives of their relations from suffering the agonizing experience of a brutal, painful and slow death as he has.

He sympathised with the Nigeria Police Force, the immediate family of the fallen hero, the Rivers State government and the Ogoni people.

He also urged all to take solace in the fact that Bako was a man of honour and gave up without compromising his respect and regard for the sanctity of life which portrays him as a candidate of heaven exemplified by the outpouring and immeasurable sympathies, lamentations and kind words on his dignified personality by his admirers and well-wishers across the country.

Dekoc commended the step already taken by Governor Siminalayi Fubara in placing a bounty on the fleeing leader of the criminal gang in Ahoada-East Local Government Area.

He appealed to the Police and other security operatives to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that all the people involved in the dastardly act and conspiracy are arrested and brought to book so that it will serve an a deterrent to other conscienceless fools that may be plotting such evil in future.
