Anti-cultism war: Gov Wike leads security agencies to demolish more hideouts
IN continuation of the anti-cultism war of the Rivers State government, Governor Nyesom Wike on Saturday led security agencies to root out cultists and kidnappers at the Eagle Island neighbourhood of Port Harcourt.
The governor and the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Foluso, Adebanjo supervised the demolition of two deadly cultists camps in the area.
One of the camps was located behind the Redeemed Church and the other camp was known as Andoni camp.
Governor Wike announced that a police station would be built on the cultists’ camp site behind the Redeemed Church, while a community hospital would be built at the site of the demolished Andoni camp.
Addressing journalists after the security operation, Governor Wike said that the entire cultists’ hideouts in the area would be demolished so that law abiding residents would live peacefully.
He noted that the war against cultists and kidnappers would be sustained to ensure that people carry out their lawful businesses without molestation.
The governor called on residents to always avail the security agencies of necessary information on the hideouts of criminals for action to be taken against them.
