Cult members kill undergraduate soldier in Yenegoa



On Monday, his family urged security agencies in the state to find his killers and bring them to justice.

Ovieakini Enoch, the deceased’s uncle, said that 20-year old Saviour was shot dead at about 8 p.m. on the Gwegwe/Naval Road in Ovom, Yenagoa Local Government Area.

He disclosed that Saviour was admitted into the NDA two years ago and that his father, Gbavieme Enoch, also died two years ago while serving in the Nigerian Army in Maidugiri, Borno.

According to him, Gbavieme, who was a Staff Sergeant, was killed while performing a national duty on Jan. 25, 2015.

“That is why Saviour’s death is a painful one,” he said.  “We are calling on the police and other security agencies to assist us to bring the perpetrators to justice.

He added he learned the police made some arrests on Sunday night.

Saviour’s mother, who cried uncontrollably, also urged the security agencies to help the family to fish out the killers.

“My son died by shooting and my husband also died by shooting; my husband was a Staff Sergeant in the Army, he died two years ago and now, my son,” she lamented.

Speaking by telephone, ASP Asimin Butswat, the spokesman of the Police Command in Bayelsa, said he would brief journalists on the matter when authorized to do so.
