Army captures wanted cultist in Rivers State


Nigerian Army

The Army, yesterday, captured a suspected cultist, Bobrisky, barely 24 hours after Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike placed a N30 million bounty on him.

Bobrisky, who was accused of some of the cult-related incidents that had, in some instances, led to lost of lives in Gokana Local Council of the state, was captured by the Nigerian Army.

Wike revealed the arrest during a security meeting with leaders of Rumuolumeni community at the Government House, Port Harcourt, yesterday.


Wike said: “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 urged community leaders to give information to the State Security Council on criminals in their communities for the security agencies to act frontally to reduce crime.

He pointed out that Rumuolumeni has remained one of the flashpoints in the state, where criminals use the waterway as a getaway to escape with kidnapped victims.

The State Commissioner of Police, Mustapha Dandaura said almost all communities had been overrun by suspected cultists. He commended the Governor for donating vehicles to the security agencies to fight crime.

Dandaura assured that security agencies would intensify the battle against crime to achieve results.
