The notorious kidnapper, Mr. Don Wani, who masterminded the killing of 23 persons in Omoku in Rivers state, has been killed.
Wani, a suspected militant leader, was confirmed killed in a combined operation by the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Army at a border town between Rivers and Imo.
A source said the incident happened at about 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The Rivers Director of DSS, Mr Tosin Ajayi, said:
“No comment for now,” when he was contacted to comment on the incident.
About 23 people were killed on January 1, 2018 on their way back from church in Omoku, Rivers State. This came as a shock to Nigerians with the President Muhammadu Buhari ordering that those involved be identified and appropriately dealt with.
