This is definitely not the kind of news one would like to start the year with but what can we do? 

While the whole world is still in a joyous mood over the New Year, a group of gunmen decided to pour sand sand in the garri of a community in Rivers State.

At least 15 persons have been killed in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State by the gunmen.

The assailants, who raided the town in the early hours of the New Year, are suspected to be working for a former militant leader, Don Nwanee.

The State Police Command said it was aware of the development but details were still sketchy.
