Natives flee Ogoni communities, as  gunmen kill 6

From TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt
Suspected gunmen have killed no fewer than six persons in Kono-Boue and Gwara communities in Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The incident occurred on Monday, forcing natives to flee their communities for fear of reprisal attack.
Daily Sun gathered that the unknown gunmen reportedly killed three  persons  each in the two communities.
It was learnt that the rampaging gunmen invaded Gwara in the morning hours and reportedly shot three persons dead.
An anonymous community source stated that the gunmen invaded Kono-Boue later in the afternoon and shot three persons dead, forcing many natives to flee  the community.
The Public Relations Officer of Community Development Committee (CDC) of Kono-Boue, Nwibakpo Golden, disclosed that three persons were killed in his community, while some  natives fled the  community.
Mr. Golden urged government to site a Police Division in the community and rehabilitate the bad portions of the roads in the area to effectively tackle the incessant attack by gunmen.
State Police command was yet to confirm the alleged attack and killing in the Ogoni communities at the time of filing the report.
