Gov Wike declares Bobrisky wanted, offers N30m for his arrest


Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has declared a notorious criminal terrorising the state simply known as Bobrisky wanted.

For anyone willing to give information leading to his arrest, Governor Wike has also placed a N30 million bounty on Bobrisky, who hails from Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Governor Wike said this on Thursday, during the handing over ceremony of the over 40 patrol vans fitted with communication gadgets to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), C4I, Police Anti-Kidnapping Unit, Police Anti-Cultism Unit, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), and Eagle Crime at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

He has urged the people in the state or anyone who has information about Bobrisky which can lead to his arrest to come forward.

Governor Wike has also called for information on the killers of a director with the state government, killed during the Choba community crisis.

The governor, who lamented cultists take over of youth groups across the state, said he has proscribed all youth groups in the state.

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

“Rivers State Government is fully prepared and will do everything required to protect lives and property. Without the protection of lives and property, there will be no governance and development.

“Anybody operating under a youth body henceforth will be arrested by security agencies. Before you contest for any youth body’s leadership, you must send the names to the DSS and Police for screening. If they are cultists, we will not allow them to operate,” Governor Wike said.
