The indigenes of Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State say the killing of Small-witch has reduced incessant gunshots in the area.
One of the community development committee chairmen of the LGA, Mr Duke Usen said prior to the killing of Small-witch by security agents, gunshots were fired every day in Andoni communities.
He said, “we can now sleep with our eyes close because Small-witch is dead. The reign of Small-witch was characterised by incessant gunshots in our communities.
“Since Small-witch was killed by security agents, peace has returned to our area. Though his boys are still there, I don’t think they can disturb the peace of Andoni LGA like when Small-witch was alive.”
TPCN had earlier reported that Small-witch and his gang were the notorious kidnappers responsible for the heinous crimes in Andoni LGA and its environs.
Small-witch was among the gang that kidnapped three policemen last year including the killing of a school headmistress along the Ogoni, Andoni Opobo/Nkoro Unity Road some months ago and the killing of a police inspector attached to the anti cultism unit.
According to the state police command, the killing of Small-witch also brought about the recovery of five magazines; one AK47 rifle containing about 120 live ammunition and a wooden gun.
