Gang Members of Notorious kidnapper and militant leader, Don Waney, who was fingered in the killings in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area who was killed in a joint operation by operatives of the Nigerian Army and the Department of State Services has surrendered.
Hundreds of Don Wanney’s fighters, who had earlier rejected all government’s overtures to them to surrender their arms have finally done so. They surrendered their arms including explosives, rocket launchers and high-caliber rifles such as AK-47, at Heroes Square yesterday in Owerri, Imo state capital.
Emenike Agamu, known in the underworld as ‘General Red Scorpion’ and the fourth-in-command in the Don Waney cult gang, surrendered his arms to security operatives in Owerri, Imo State.
Members of the group, after the Omoku killings in Rivers state on New Year’s Day, were declared wanted and its leader, John Igwedibe (aka Don Waney) was gunned down in Enugu by security agents.
His younger brother was shot dead days later. Red Scorpion surrendered alongside other Don Wani boys who had earlier rejected the government’s amnesty offer. He confessed that the militant group killed many people and blew up many oil pipelines.
Late Don Waney’s younger brother, Oluchi Igwedibia aka Obatosu, the Field Commander of the murderous gang who carried out a brutal murder of 23 persons in Omoku, Rivers State, on Jan. 1, 2018, was killed by security operatives at Sabo Iyakpe, Etsako West in Edo State on Sunday, January 28, 2018.
Oluchi, who was among the 32 Cultists declared wanted by the State Security Council in Rivers State, fled Omoku town (Rivers) and went to Ughelli (Delta) to reside. He then later rented an apartment in Edo State, four days ago (Jan. 24) as part of his plan to avoid arrest.
However, Don Waney’s younger brother who hid in the ceiling after DSS operatives who called the Army for support stormed his new hideout, engaged the security operatives in a shootout and was killed in the gun battle.
