DPO Murder: Police Confirms Death Of Prime Suspect 

The Rivers State Police Command on Monday confirmed the death of Iceland Secret Cult kingpin, David Gift Opara, popularly known as 2Baba.

The Command spokeswoman, SP Grace Irige-Koko, while giving an update on the effort of the Police so far in capturing  2Baba and other members  of the gang confirmed that he had been killed.

“On February 17, 2024, at around 12:00hrs, 2Baba and his gang attacked Okogbe town and Odiokwu community, destroying pipelines.

 “At 04:00hrs, operatives raided 2Baba’s new camp. Despite a fierce gun battle, 2Baba and his gang members escaped. However, at around 14:00hrs, intelligence confirmed 2Baba’s death after he lost consciousness and resuscitation attempts failed.

“Efforts are in progress to retrieve the body of the infamous killer, while investigations into the Iceland cult’s activities in the region continue.”

Irige-Koko further explained that in response to the heinous murder of SP Bako on September 8, 2023, in Odiemude Community, Ahoada-West LGA of Rivers State, the law enforcement agencies, including the police, military, and relevant stakeholders, had been unwavering in their commitment to apprehending the culprits and ensuring justice is served.

“Viral videos revealing the brutal murder of SP Bako and the brazen display of weapons identified 2Baba and his gang, affiliated with the Iceland Secret Cult. A manhunt ensued, with the Rivers State Government and Nigeria Police offering a 100 million naira bounty for any credible information leading to 2Baba’s arrest.

“Upon assuming office as the Commissioner of Police for Rivers State on November 15, 2023, CP Olatunji Disu conducted an operational tour to Ahoada local government, where the late DPO was murdered. The Commissioner urged officers to intensify efforts in apprehending those responsible for the gruesome killing.

“He also paid respects to the five innocent individuals—Charles Osu, Ogbobula Eja, Idaowukwa Felix, Paul Victor, and Achinivu Saturday Edi—who were tragically killed by 2BABA and his gang on suspicion of collaboration with the police. May their souls rest in peace,”
