Nelson Chidiebere, Port Harcourt
The Commissioner of Police in Rivers State, CP Olatunji Disu, on Tuesday, vowed that the killers of late Ndidi Livingstone, the Community Development Committee (CDC) Chairman of Mgbuoshimini who was shot dead in front of his church by unknown gunmen close to Rumueme waterfront last week Saturday, will not go unpunished.
Disu who paid a condolence visit to the deceased family was accompanied by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Grace Iringe-Koko, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the Agip Police Division, and other senior officers.
The Police Commissioner was received by the deceased elder brother, Godspower, just as he condoled with the deceased’s wife, Mrs Patience Ndidi Livingstone, her children, and other members of the family.
While speaking, Disu said he was empathetic of the family’s pain and was moved to come and condole with them.
“We have come here today to console the family and assure them. We will not leave this matter unattended,” he said.
While addressing Newsmen, he asserted that the killers of Ndidi Livingstone will not go unpunished.
He assured that a manhunt for the killer squad has begun, saying the Police are edging closer to apprehending them.
According to him: “Actually, we are aware of what has been happening around here. We have gathered a lot of information, and one or two people are talking to us. By the grace of almighty God, very soon, we will unravel those behind the act, and they will not go unpunished”.
While responding, Godspower, elder brother to the deceased, thanked CP Disu for what he described as a reassuring visit and for making efforts to apprehend the killers of his brother.
Recall that the deceased was shot by armed men as he stepped out of the compound of a church, Peculiar Faith Ministry, on Saturday, January 13, 2024. The killers had laid in wait in a black SUV and sped off after they shot him.
