An eyewitness who spoke to Channels Television on the condition of anonymity, however, said the perpetrators were dressed in military camouflage and had been loitering around the area, apparently waiting for their target before attacking.

The Public Relations Officer of the Rivers State Command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko, said details about the incident were still sketchy and that the Command was investigating.
