 Photos: One dead, another injured as cultists ambush SARS operatives along East-West Road, Rivers State

Members of the Dey bam Cult group ambushed a patrol team of Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, along the Emuoha section of the East-West Road at about 9 am on Monday.

The ensuing gun battle resulted in the death of a member of the cult group while a policeman was seriously injured and is currently in the intensive care unit of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital.

The Commander of SARS in Rivers State, Akin Fakorode, who confirmed the incident said:

“We had encounter with cult group in Emohua this morning. We were on patrol to stop kidnappings and robberies in that axis and to make the East-West road safe for travellers, when we were attacked. A gun battle ensured leading to the death of one of the cult members

“No arrest has been made yet, we are still on the trail of other members of the cult group. We just recovered some of the weapons of the cult members.

An eyewitness, Aghedo Alexander, who shared the photos narrated the incident on Facebook.

“I witnessed everything on my way to Ahoada, my office. I was caught in a crossfire or will I say ambush, after backup came from SARS and they cleared the blockage at OGBAKRI junction chasing this protesting cult boys into the bush and telling motorist to continue their journey. Unknown to us and the SARS team that these cultists have mounted another ‘burn fire’ and roadblock 2 kilometres away from the first one SARS cleared, the boys came out from the bush and started shooting at motorists. Thank Goodness my driver was fast enough to make a U-turn. Thank God for safety”
