A Port Harcourt based
lawyer and human rights crusader, Barr. Jackson Assor, has said that the rampant killings in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA of Rivers State has turned the state to a huge human abattoir.
Assor, who stated this while speaking with The Tide in Port Harcourt on Monday expressed regrets that government at all levels had failed to protect lives and property.
He sent the state had become notorious for the level of killings, kidnapping and other atrocious bestiality.
According to him, the first responsibility of government to the people was the maintenance of law and order. Any government that fails in that direction leaves much to be desired.
The Port Harcourt lawyer, who was reacting to the killing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward chairman in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of the state, described the scenario as unfortunate.
Barr. Assor expressed surprise that none of the perpetrators of the dastardly acts had been caught.
“It is unfortunate that Rivers State which once prided itself as a garden city has become a sort of wide life where predators hunt their preys without resistance from any quarters. It is condemnable. It is unhealthy, if the ugly trend continues, it will discourage investment in the state”.
He described the killings in ONELGA as senseless and cruel.
He therefore urged law enforcement agents to restore order in trouble communities in the state.
