Overview Of: Wike Offers ₦50Million Bounty On IPOB Leader
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has offered to give at least fifty million naira any body who knows the where about of Mr Stanley, Mgbere, one of the leaders of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)
Naijakit learnt that Stanley Mgbere allegedly led some members of the proscribed group to cause mayhem in some parts of the state.
In a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, the governor said no form of procession or agitation by the group or any of its affiliates was allowed in any part of the state.
“Security agencies are hereby directed to stop any form of procession or agitation by IPOB in Rivers State or any part thereof and arrest and prosecute any person or group that identifies with the membership or activities of IPOB in the State; Government will issue an executive order to strengthen and ensure the effective enforcement of these measures.
“The governor would meet with all leaders of youth groups and community development committees in the State on Monday 26th October 2020 to take measures to counter and stop all IPOB activities in the state.
“Today, IPOB continued with its devilish and destructive activities at Rumukwurushi, Iriebe and Oyigbo in open defiance of the State Government’s curfew on human movements.
“Security intelligence and surveillance have revealed that IPOB has continued to expand its membership drive, holding meetings regularly, and expanding its logistical base, including the maintenance of illegal detention cells in Emenike and other parts of Diobu, Port Harcourt.
“As a matter of fact, Oyigbo town has practically become the group’s main operational base in Rivers State, from which they have become notorious for launching premeditated violence and terror on the State, businesses and innocent citizens.
“As a people, we have become very much unsettled by the terrorist acts and endured the continuing irritations, violence, destruction and provocations of IPOB in and against the people of Rivers State,” the statement read in part.
