The people of Ahoada East and Ahoada West local government areas of Rivers State are celebrating following the recovery of the corpse of wanted notorious Iceland Cult kingpin David Gift Opara, aka 2Baba.

The recovery of the corpse was the further assurance the people needed to confirm that 2Baba who, alongside his gang members constituted terror to residents of the various communities was truly dead as police claimed some days ago.

Rivers Commissioner of Police, CP Olatunji Disu, told journalists at a press briefing at the Police headquarters, Moscow road, Port Harcourt that the dead body of 2Baba was located and exhumed Friday morning in a shallow grave at Ebrass forest at Ahoada West Local Government Area of the State.

CP Disu expressed his appreciation to the Nigerian Air Force, the Inspector General of Police, the Intelligence Response Team Abuja, and the tactical teams of Rivers Police Command for their contributions to efforts that led to the killing of the wanted cult kingpin.

CP Disu said “The Airforce assisted us to soften the ground by their airstrike. We thank the Governor of Rivers State for his support throughout the manhunt for 2Baba.

“It is important the public continue to provide information. We will continue to mount pressure to dislodge other members of 2Baba gang.

“The Governor of Rivers State in my conversation with him said the 100 million naira bounty on 2Bab is still available”.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of Ahoada East Ben Eke has commended the Police, Inspector General of Police for the achievement.

He said “I must say the Police has done so well for the killing. Four months is a reasonable time to bring down the man who killed SP Bako Angbashim.

“To the best of my knowledge the dead body is that of 2Baba”,

“My people are happy, business can now thrive in the area,” Ben Eke confirms.

2baba was declared wanted over the brutal murder of former DPO Ahaoda Division, late SP. Bako Angbashim on September 8, 2023, in Odumude community, Ahaoda East Local Government Area.

CP Tunji Rilwan Disu said “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who played a part in this operation, particularly our dedicated tactical teams and the Intelligence Response Team,IRT, special team. I want to extend my special thanks to the Nigerian Airforce for their invaluable support. Their aerial strike on 2baba’s camp on February 10 resulted in significant casualties among the gang, which facilitated our subsequent operations.

CP Disu assures the residents of Rivers State that the Rivers State Police Command remains committed to the safety and security of the state.

“We will continue our operations to apprehend other members of 2baba’s gang and dismantle any remaining criminal networks. We call on the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the appropriate authorities”.

Meanwhile, it was gathered that even as the Police was closing in on him, 2Baba was calling and threatening one of the biggest businesswoman in Ahoada and West with the demand that she should pay a specific amount of money into an account with name GIFT DAVID OKPARA: 0888058785 GT BANK or risk being kidnapped or killed .
