The Rivers State Police Command has vowed to apprehend those behind the gruesome murder of a Port Harcourt-based lawyer, Promise Igwe.

The command said on Saturday that it was working on some clues that could lead to those responsible for Igwe’s death.

The lawyer was on Friday morning killed by gunmen in what appeared to be an assassination.

The incident happened around 10am in a bar at Ozuoba community in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

It was gathered that the lawyer’s assailants had stormed the bar after alighting from their car, went straight to their target and shot him four times before leaving the scene.

The victim was said to have been waiting for a client when the heavily armed gunmen came in and shot him dead.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, told Southern City News that all hands were on deck towards ensuring that the murderers were arrested and prosecuted.

“The investigation towards arresting and prosecuting those behind his death is on. We have some clues that we are working on. But we are being careful so that we don’t get the wrong target. It is clearly a case of assassination,” he said.

Omoni promised that no stone would be left unturned in the ongoing investigation towards unravelling the circumstance that led to Igwe’s murder.
