Personnel of the ONELGA Security and Advisory Council, OSPAC has reportedly killed a mother of five, Victoria Ibrahim and the stripping of another, Miss Comfort Eze, naked.
Mrs Victoria Ibrahim was allegedly shot dead by OSPAC members in Rumukpe, Emohua Local Government while Eze was accused of stealing cassava by the group in Ovogo community of the same LGA.
The Centre for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign, a human rights advocacy group in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, accused the group which was set up in 2016 following the increase in crime rate and failure of security agencies to tackle insecurity in Rivers state of human rights violation.
Centre for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign in a statement on Monday, condemned stripping of Miss Comfort Eze naked by the vigilante group.
The Rivers State Police Command had months ago urged vigilante groups in the state to submit their arms with immediate effect or face dire consequences.
According to the Center: “We condemn the stripping of miss Comfort Eze naked by suspected OSPAC members in Ovogo in Emohua Local of Rivers State for allegedly stealing cassava.
“We demand the immediate arrest of the perpetrators of the cruel and inhumane act against Miss Comfort. The Authority of Emohua LGA must ensure EMOLGA OSPAC operates within the confines of the law.
“We condemn in strong term the shooting to death of Mrs Victoria Ibrahim, a mother of five by alleged OSPAC members in Rumukpe in Emohua LGA. We call on Authority of Emohua LGA, Police Authority in the State to immediately arrest the perpetrator(s) of the crime. We have also heard from the family of the deceased,”
The human rights group called on the Emohua LGA council to ensure EMOLGA OSPAC operates within the confines of the law, adding that it is working with the family of the deceased to ensure that both women get justice.
