In the month of April 2019, We the People tracked and documented 46 atrocious killings in Rivers state occurring on a near daily basis. This report contains the different incidents where these killings occur. Unfortunately, the alarming increase in cases of atrocious killings have not received commensurate response from law enforcement agencies and the government. Beyond alarming headlines and periodic condemnations, not much effort is being invested in curtailing these incidents.
In tracking these cases and producing this report, We the People hopes to pressure the government and its agencies to account for these deaths. The principal responsibility of government is the security of its citizens. In Rivers state, this has been a woeful failure.
