One person has been killed following an alleged attempt by some unknown gunmen to assassinate the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom in Okirika Local Government Area of Rivers State, His Royal Majesty, King Ateke Tom.
Ateke, an ex-Niger Delta freedom fighter, had visited Amadi-Ama in Port Harcourt for a traditional function when some armed youths stormed the area and shot sporadically in the direction where Ateke was.
However, Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, while confirming the incident, condemned the assassination attempt on Ateke, noting that the incident was capable of igniting fresh crisis in the region.
In a statement Wednesday in Port Harcourt, Comrade Samuel George, the Chairman of the Eastern Zone of the Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, pointed out that the Ijaw leaders were not happy over the development intended to take the life of the Amanyanabo.
