Popular and notorious kingpin bobrisky who was arrested on Saturday has died.
There was drama, at the police command where he was paraded, when the policemen tried to get some information from him such as his real name which he gave as Honest Digbara in a low tone after several efforts by the operatives.
While he talked, he battled with the gunshot wounds and machete injuries on him. He also answered a question about his marital status that he had a wife who is pregnant.
Minutes later, he demanded water to drink and was obliged. But he was too weak to drink as he fell to a corner, saying, “I want to die.’’
He then briefly looked in the direction of his younger brother lying lifeless beside him. He then hugged his remains, rolled sideways with eyes upwards and breathed his last to the surprise of journalists and cops.
There was jubilation on Saturday on Moscow Road, Port Harcourt, headquarters of the Rivers State Police Command, as officers arrested a most wanted kidnapper, Honest Digbara, popularly called Bobisky.
He is accused of terrorizing some parts of Ogoni axis and being behind series of criminal activities in the area.
Bobrisky was arrested alive in the early hours of Saturday (about 2am) in Korokoro, Tai Local Government Area of the state in a joint operation led by the Divisional Police Officer of Bori, Superintendent Bako Angbanshim.
Spokesman of the Command, SP Nnamdi Omoni disclosed this on Saturday morning, September 12, while showing the wounded suspect and that of his alleged second in command said to be his younger brother, at the command headquarters.
Bobisky, a native of Nwenbiara, was said to be attending a funeral when policemen and operatives of a local vigilance group known as Tai Spac stormed the area.
But on sighting them, he opened fire leading to a gun battle during which his younger brother, said to be the driver, was killed on the spot.
The state Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, paraded the remains of Bobisky and his younger brother before journalists at the command on Saturday.
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike had earlier placed a N30 million bounty on the kingpin.
