How Boboski allegedly roped in Gokana Council Chairman
The Rivers State Police Command is still interrogating the Chairman of Gokana Local Government Council, Paul Kobani who was detained Thursday.
Kobani is suspected to be in police net over his alleged role in providing support to Boboski who has all along been wanted by the Rivers State Government and the police.
Boboski gave up the ghost hours after he was captured alive by the police, following a shootout which was fatalistic.
Digbara repeatedly asked for water to drink whilst he was being paraded before the press.
The late kidnapping kingpin and hired assassin who was responsible for several killings may have fingered the Gokana Local Government Council Chairman.
“The killer poked a crooked finger in the direction of the Chairman after he was rounded up”, a Gokana indigene thoughtfully remarked.
“Boboski’s alleged confession, before he died prompted the police to take Paul Kobani into custody for further questioning”, the source added.
Eventhough Kobani is in the hands of the police, he is still presumed to be innocent until investigations reveal otherwise.
Spokesman of the Rivers Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, CSP, disclosed that the police was determined to unravel the truth.
Speaking over the phone, the image maker of the force assured that the police would be clinical in its approach to the investigation.
There have been allegations in the past that some bad apples within the PDP may have been responsible for politically motivated murders in parts of the State.
The purported claim by Boboski concerning the alleged involvement of the Gokana Local Government Council Chairman may heighten fears in some quarters.
Our information is that one Obot, a no nonsense cop, is reportedly leading the team of investigators who are interrogating the council chairman elected on the platform of the PDP.
Following his alleged implication as one of the prime sponsors of organized crime within his locality, Paul Kobani may have to be under the searchlight of the police for a while.
Details of the ongoing police probe are not yet known, but the Port Harcourt Telegraph has learnt that the suspect is making useful statements, which might likely determine the outcome of the investigation in the near future.
Recall that the Council Chairman was taken from his residence around 4.00am Thursday morning and taken into police custody.
Public Relations Officer of the Police, CSP Nnamdi Omoni confirmed the arrest in an interview with the Port Harcourt Telegraph.
The Rivers State Government had earlier placed a ransom of N30 million on the head of Boboski for information which would lead to his arrest.
Boboski would be the second notorious killer to be targeted by the Rivers State Government.
The first was Don Wanni who was trailed outside the State and killed by soldiers.
Information making the rounds suggest that the N30 million bounty on Boboski’s head may have been claimed by the police.
Initial reports said a group of vigilante hands may have aided the police in the effort to intercept the dangerous criminal.
