Wike declares ‘Bobrisky’ wanted

The governor of the state of Rivers, Nyesom Wike, has awarded a reward of N30 million to a notorious criminal, “Bobrisky,” who has been terrorizing the local government area of ​​Gokana.

He said the reward extends to information about the murderers of a Director of the Rivers State Government during the Choba crisis. Wike also banned all youth groups in Rivers, regretting that all have been kidnapped by cultists.

Affected youth groups include the Ikwerre Youth Movement (IYM), the Ogoni Youth Movement (OYM), the Bonny Youth Assembly (BYA) and the Ekpeye Youth Federation (EYF), among others.

Wike expressed his administration’s determination to increase support for security agencies due to the successes recorded by Operation Sting.

“Any person operating under a youth body will be arrested by security agencies. Before competing for the leadership of any youth body, you must send the names to the DSS and the Police for evaluation. If they are cultists, we will not allow them to operate,” he said.
