Rivers State Police Command has launched a decisive operation targeting a notorious criminal figure known as General 2man in the Ogbologbo community of Ahoada West Local Government Area.

General 2man, identified as Ikem ThankGod, has been implicated in a string of violent crimes, including the murder of Inspector Usang Ude and multiple civilian casualties. His reign of terror extended to kidnapping, armed robbery, and vandalism, with reports of him even disrupting social events at will.

During the operation, General 2man and his gang engaged police tactical teams in a fierce firefight. While the kingpin managed to escape, his second-in-command, ThankGod Uchechi, alias “Pastor SP,” and third-in-command, ‘Western King’ Okpo Emenike, were fatally wounded. Several other gang members sustained injuries, and significant weaponry was seized.
