In a significant breakthrough, the police in Rivers State have successfully neutralized the notorious cult commander known as ‘Solution’, a prominent figure in the ‘Greenlanders’ cult group. The operation culminated in a fierce shootout in the Owube Kingdom within the Ahoada West Local Government Area of the state, resulting in the demise of the long-sought-after criminal.

Identified as Izuma David Odiereke, alias ‘Solution’, the cult commander had been a fugitive from the law for nearly a decade, evading capture while orchestrating a reign of terror in the region. His criminal activities had rendered his clan desolate, instilling fear and dread among the local populace.

The decisive action by the security forces came after meticulous planning and intelligence gathering, culminating in a raid on his stronghold located deep within a forested area. Despite attempts to evade capture, ‘Solution’ found himself outnumbered and outgunned when confronted by the determined police operatives in the early hours of Monday morning.

Addressing the press at the Ahoada Area Command, Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Olatunji Disu, hailed the operation as a major victory in the fight against crime in the state. Describing ‘Solution’ as a serial killer with a long history of violence, Commissioner Disu underscored the significance of his elimination in restoring peace and security to the area.

The late cult commander had been a fugitive since 2016, leaving a trail of bloodshed and destruction in his wake. His criminal activities, ranging from murder to kidnapping, had terrorized the local community, leading to widespread fear and displacement.

Commissioner Disu revealed that ‘Solution’ was implicated in the assassination of the paramount ruler of the region earlier this year, along with several other high-profile killings attributed to his gang. The successful operation not only brings closure to the victims’ families but also delivers a resounding message to criminal elements that law enforcement will pursue them relentlessly.

Commending the bravery and dedication of the police operatives involved in the operation, Commissioner Disu urged them to remain vigilant and steadfast in their commitment to rid the state of criminal elements. He emphasized the need for continued cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the community to root out criminality and restore peace.

The news of ‘Solution’s’ demise was met with relief and jubilation among the local population, who had long suffered under his tyrannical rule. Leaders from both Ahoada East and West Local Government Areas expressed their gratitude to the police for their decisive action, expressing hope for a safer and more secure future.

In conclusion, the successful operation against the notorious cult leader marks a significant milestone in the ongoing efforts to combat crime and restore law and order in Rivers State. It serves as a reminder of the unwavering commitment of law enforcement agencies to protect the lives and property of citizens and uphold the rule of law.
