Most wanted kidnapper in Rivers state, Honest Digbara, aka Boboskiis dead
Boboski reportedly died on Saturday, few hours after his arrest by the police.
His death resulted from injuries sustained during the raid on his hideout, the police has said.
Report says he was arrested by the police in a joint security operation with vigilante from Tai local government area of Rivers state.
Rivers state Commissioner of Police,
UGC Joseph Mukan claimed Boboski, whose driver was killed during a shootout with the police, was arrested alive.
According to the police boss, Boboski was responsible for a series of kidnappings and killings in the state.
“He was arrested through credible information by our partners who are always working with us with credible information. So, at about 2am, the police, in a swift operation sting, stormed his hideout. On sighting the police, they started firing at the police. Unfortunately for them, his driver was gunned down and he was arrested alive,” Mukan said.
“We have been on his trail, with the partnership of local vigilante, and fortunately, today, God delivered him to our hands. “We want to assure the people of Rivers state that we will not relent. The fight against criminality is number one in policing this state, and they should rest assured that normalcy will soon return to this state.”
Governor Nyesom Wike had in 2019 placed a N30 million bounty on Boboski, who was declared wanted by the police for criminal activities in parts of Rivers.
