A native of the community who gave his name as Harmony Chukwu, in a chat with National Network accused OSPAC of killing his aged father, and destroying their house without provocation.

Harmony alleged that following the attack,OSPAC invaded his compound and shot his father dead.
According to him,his younger brother of eleven years who saw the OSPAC members was the person who used his late father's mobile phone to call him and his elder ones and informed them of the development.
He further alleged that OSPAC also killed two women and another man whom the security outfit accused their children of taking part in the first attack.
Mr Harmony said the Police station in the community allegedly prevented them from making a formal complaint about the matter.
When contacted, a member of the OSPAC, aka 'Thunder,’ whom Harmony accused of leading OSPAC in the attack denied the allegation.

The spokesperson of the Rivers State Police Command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni when contacted, said the Police cannot stop a complainant from reporting a matter in the station and advised Harmony to go back to the station and call him if the Police would not allow him to make an entry.
