Police in Rivers State have recovered the body of Divisional Police Officer (DPO) SP Bako Angbasim.

The late Angbasim was killed by a cult gang led by Gift Okpara, popularly known as 2Baba on 8 September 2023.

The police said the remains of Angbasim were recovered from a burial site within the gang’s shrine.

The gang ambushed Angbashim, captured and decapitated his body in Odiemude community in Ahoada East Local Government Area in Rivers State and went away with his remains.

After killing him, the suspects filmed the DPO’s decapitated remains and posted it on social media.

The leader of the gang, Gift Okpara, was killed on February 17, 2024, during an operation carried out by the Rivers State Police Command in Ebrass in Ahoada West LGA.

Days after, the police recovered his decomposing remains from a shallow grave in the Ebrass forest.
