“I am appealing to members of the public to give useful information that could lead to the arrest of the culprits; I assure them of their safety,” he said.
The CP commiserated with the Gov. Okowa and the family of the deceased over the unfortunate incident.
He had on Saturday led a team of policemen to the scene of the incident and also held meetings with police authorities within the Warri Area Command and other stakeholders regarding the incident.
The commissioner also visited Ekpan General Hospital where one of the survivors of the attack was receiving treatment as well as the monarch of Uvwie, Emmanuel Fideso the Ovie of Uvwie Kingdom.
