PORT HARCOURT – TWO soldiers were reportedly killed Saturday night by yet unknown assailants in Abonemma, headquarters of Akuku-Toru local government area of Rivers State, where a Lieutenant and several civilians were earlier killed in 23 February Presidential Election Day violence.
Spokesperson for the 6 Division Nigerian Army in Port Harcourt, Col Aminu Ilyasu and his counterpart at the Rivers State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni were yet to give a word on the development, but community sources suspected that the soldiers’ killers came from outside to do the killing and disappeared immediately.

Following the presidential election day killings, which resulted in cancellation of the votes from Akuku Toru local government area, many fear that March 9 governorship in Abonnena and other flashpoints could be more deadlier unless adequate security measures were put in place.
