Less than 24 hours after Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike placed a N30million bounty on notorious cultist, popularly known as Bobrisky of Gokana, the governor has confirmed his arrest by Nigerian Army and promised to redeem the pledge.
Speaking during a security meeting with leaders of Rumuolumeni Community at the Government House Port Harcourt on Friday, Governor Wike 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”.
Governor Wike 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 flashpoints 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.
He reiterated the prescription of youth groups in the state, saying that any youth body that plans to operate, must first be profiled.
