Wike vows to come hard on cultists terrorising Rivers

Following the renewed cult activities that have sacked Omudioga community in Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers, Governor Nyesom Wike has vowed not to spare suspected cultists unleashing mayhem on communities in the state.

He averred that the cultists terrorising Omudioga community would be be brought to book, unless they sheathe their swords and allow peace to reign in the area.

Wike stated this on Tuesday through his Special Adviser on Conflict Resolution, Chief Okori Abelekum, at a two-day Mediation and Community Reconciliation Workshop for community leaders in conflict affected communities, in Port Harcourt City Local Government Area.

He maintained that the interest of the government is for peace to reign, and stressed that peace and security are reasons the governor instituted the State Amnesty Programme.

Wike regretted that some hoodlums still cause unrest in the state, and noted that after the efforts and investment of government in peace and security, any group of persons who cause insecurity would be dealt with accordingly.

According to him, “It was from security report I heard it. That community is in Emohua Local Government Area, I will meet with the Caretaker Committee Chairman of that LGA soon.

“Emohua is in our catchment area for peace and conflict resolution and we will meet with all the leaders of the area. If all these things are happening in that community, we will not tolerate it.”
