Indications emerged on Saturday that a combined team of operatives of the Nigerian Army and the Department of State Services have killed a notorious kidnapper and militant leader, Don Waney, who was fingered in the recent killings in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area.
Although efforts to confirm the development was not successful as at press time, it was gathered that Waney was killed in a community in Imo State, which shared a border with Rivers State.
A reliable security source quoted by ThisDay confirmed the incident, saying, “He (Don Waney) was shot and killed at about 5pm on Saturday.”
The Rivers State Director of DSS, Mr. Tosin Ajayi, however, refused to speak on the incident immediately.
Efforts made through several phone calls to the Spokesman of 6 Division of the Nigerian Army, Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, to confirm the development was not successful.
It was, however, learnt that soldiers and DSS operatives were already bringing Don Waney’s corpse down to Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
