Police Recovers Serial Kidnapper  2Baba’s Body In Rivers Forest

The missing body of Serial kidnapper , Gift Okpara otherwise known as 2Baba, who was reportedly killed by a joint security operation in Rivers State, has been found and recovered.

The kidnap kingpin was killed in a gun battle, while the gang  escaped but with injuries. While information had filtered in that 2baba couldn’t survive the gunshot wounds he sustained, there was nothing concrete to back that up until his body was recovered last night.

Last year, Governor Siminalayi Fubara had placed a N100 million bounty on the suspected kidnapper and his gang for the murder of DPO Bako Angbashim, a superintendent of police and for the resurgence of violent crimes, including kidnapping and terrorism.

Sources exclusively disclosed that the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Police Command, CP Olatunji Disu and security forces had been silently mining intelligence on the case.

On February 17 at about noon,  2baba and gang had attacked Okogbe Town and Odiokwu community, destroying several pipelines and in response, the security forces had raided their camp and despite a fierce gun battle, the gang  escaped but with injuries. While information had filtered in that 2baba couldn’t survive the gunshot wounds he sustained, there was nothing concrete to back that up until his body was recovered last night.

It was gathered that on Thursday night, the intelligence had paid off as the CP alongside his crack squad dared to brave the horrors of E-brass in Ahoada West Local Government Area in the State.

Due to the extreme difficult terrain with  strategically positioned informants to monitor any entrance into the forest, it was gathered that it took the squad about two hours before they could access the forest and recover the body.
