PORT HARCOURT—There was panic in Rumuakwunde Village, Emohua community in Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State yesterday, following the killing of a yet-to-be identified man by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, in the state.

The Prince of Emohua community, Prince Chigozie Okor, confirmed the incident and noted that it had caused tension, adding that youths stormed the office of SARS at Ogbakiri Junction, along the East-West Road, to register their grievances.

Okor said they used the body to block the entrance into SARS office, leading to sporadic shootings by the security operatives.
