The Rivers State Police Command has taken another giant stride in its ongoing onslaught against cultism and other related crimes in the state.
On Monday April 8, 2024, a team of police detectives was deployed to the Ogbologbo community in Ahoada West Local Government Area to bring to an end the reign of terror of one Ikem ThankGod, popularly known as General 2man.

General 2man, a close ally of the now neutralized 2Baba and General Odereke, was a terror in the Ahoada West Local Government Area and neighboring Local Government Areas. Some of his nefarious activities included the shooting to death of Inspector Usang Ude on April 13, 2023.

On March 5, 2024, he also murdered four persons, namely, Henry Kirirka, Patience Henry, Abigail Victor, and Chigozie Okpo. He also slaughtered one Samuel Philip without provocation. Last month, he buried several persons alive, including Christmas Ede and Agode Gamany.

He has carried out a lot of kidnapping activities within and outside the Ahoada West Local Government Area. His catalogue of criminal activities also included armed robbery and vandalisation of valuable properties. He coordinated the deroofing of public buildings and the selling of the roofing sheets. He also constituted himself as an authority that approved social events within the Local Government Area.
This has made him to attack and disrupt weddings, burials, etc., which he did not approve of.

During the operation, General 2man and his gang opened fire on the Police tactical team. Though he was able to evade arrest, his second-in-command, ThankGod Uchechi aka, ‘Pastor SP,’ and his third-in-command, ‘Western King’ Okpo Emenike were fatally wounded. Several gang members escaped with gunshot injuries, and two loaded AK-47 rifles and eight magazines were recovered from the gang. Concerted efforts are in top gear to bring General 2man and his fleeing gang members to justice and put an end to his reign of terror.

The Commissioner of Rivers State Command, CP Olatunji Rilwan Disu, while commending the tactical team for their efforts, reiterated his commitment to fighting crimes in the state. He equally urged members of the public to feed the police with reliable information that could lead to the arrest of the fleeing suspects and other criminal elements in the state.

Spokesperson of the Command,
SP Grace Iringe-Koko confirmed the story.
