Army captures 'Bobrisky’ after governor Wike declared him wanted

The Rivers state governor, Nyelsom Wike, says the Nigerian army has captured a suspected notorious cultist, Bobrisky, less than a day after he placed a N30 million bounty on him.

Wike was speaking at a security meeting with leaders of Rumuolumeni community at the government House Port Harcourt on Friday,

He thanked the Nigerian army for capturing the suspected cultist.

“The Army has captured Bobrisky of Gokana.  I will pay the bounty that I promised to the Nigerian Army. Anyone who  generates insecurity in Rivers State, I am ready to pay any amount to ensure the arrest of that person,” he said.

He also called on community leaders to supply information to the state security council on criminals in their communities for the security agencies to act frontally to reduce crime.

He described Rumuolumeni as one of the flash points in the state, where criminals use the waterway as a getaway point.

He urged community leaders to cooperate with the state government to check the activities of cult groups and insecurity in the area.

Also speaking, the state commissioner of police, Mustapha Dandaura, said almost all communities have been overrun by cultists.

He said security agencies cannot watch the situation degenerate.

He commended Wike for donating vehicles to the security agencies to fight crime. He assured that security agencies  will  intensify the battle against crime to achieve  results.
