Rivers State governor, Chief Barrister Nyesom Wike has told newsmen and citizens of the state that he will not fold his arms and watch criminals destroy his state as he will do everything possible to bring peace and harmony back to Rivers State.
Speaking on a popular television station, Wike said, if IPOB is allowed to operate from Oyigbo local government, they will soon overrun the state, as he claimed that they made attempt to rename a local government in the state. According to Wike, the Federal Government has already labelled IPOB a terrorist group and he doesn’t have any regret as he stands with the Federal Government.
Governor Wike also promised to give the family of the killed security personnel a sum of 20 million Naira and also cater for the welfare of the bereaved widows and their children.
“Security agencies during their search of some residents in Oyigbo, saw shrines with IPOB flags and Nnamdi Kanu’s picture. If IPOB is allowed to operate from Oyigbo, they will soon overrun the State. They made attempt to rename a local government, that alone is a signal. I will not agree to that.” Wike Says.
