The wanted sea-pirate leader from Toru-Ndoro community who caused the invading of Toru-Ndoro community in Ekeremor local government area Bayelsa state by Nigerian Army. Events led to the invasion of Toru-Ndoro was largely due to the last primitive action which Kareowei took by beheading a Nigerian security agents and abduction of an Ijaw ex-militant leader from Ogulagha town in Burutu LGA, of Delta State, General Bonigawei.

General Bonigawei who is a member of the Delta waterways security team and special adviser to the Delta State Governor Okowa on security matters was said to have been sent by the Delta State government to negotiate with the arrested sea-pirate leader to give a him a soft landing; thereby removing him amd his boys from the creek.

He brought out revolver pistol from his body and shot and the security personnel, killed him and beheaded him in company of his bad boys before the watchful eyes of the people in Toru-Ndoro in broad day.
