A dreaded kidnap kingpin and cult leader, Augustine Agulegbu, has been shot dead by security operatives in Delta State.
Agulegbu was an integral part of Don Waney’s killer squad, known as ‘The Red Squad.’
He was the sixth-in-command to Don Wayne.
The security operatives, who were mainly personnel of the Department of State Services, DSS, trailed Agulegbu, who is also called Nana, to one of his hideouts located along the New Sapele Road, Obiaruko in Ukwani LGA of Delta State, before he was shot.
It was also gathered that Emenike was one of those granted amnesty by the Imo State Government.
The Chairman of ONELGA, Osi Olisa, who confirmed the killing of Agulegbu to reporters, said that the deceased’s corpse was displayed at the local government secretariat in Omoku.
Olisa further thanked the state governor, Nyesom Wike; the 6 Division of the Nigerian Army and the DSS for their commitment towards ensuring that peace returned to the area.
He said, “The once-bewildered people of ONELGA are beginning to lead a normal live once again. The return of peace may not have been possible without the commitment of our peace-loving Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike.
“We also appreciate all the security agencies, especially the Department of State Services and the 6 Division of the Nigerian Army, for the killing of Don Waney’s CSO, Augustine Agulegbu, a.k.a. Nana.
“The crackdown on the chief security officer of the late Omoku gang leader, Johnson Igwedibia, a.k.a. Don Waney, is part of the ongoing efforts to cleanse ONELGA of all social vices.
“As a local government council, we shall continue to offer our best support to the Government of Rivers State and all the security agencies to make ONELGA safe for everyone.”
