Rivers State Governor, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike, has declared that the perpetrators of last Monday’s killings at Mgbuoshimini community in Obio/Akpor local government area of the state will be brought to justice.

Wike, who made the declaration today when he led members of the state security council for an on-the-spot assessment of Mgbuoshimini community where unknown gunmen killed innocent persons, said security agencies have been empowered to fish out the culprits.

The governor said, “This is most unfortunate.  Those involved in this dastardly act will not go scot free. The security agencies have been empowered to go after them.

“Everybody should remain calm as we are talking measures to ensure that our people are protected from such ugly attacks.”

Wike stated that initial security report indicate that it is a cult-related violence, wondering why perpetrators  would unleash mayhem on innocent persons.

The governor said as part of measures to forestall a recurrence, the administration will build a police station and quarters to check the activities of criminals, adding that the state government will assist the families  of the deceased.

He called on members of the public to cooperate with security agencies through the supply of relevant information  to check the activities of criminals.

Wike said, “We will not leave any stone unturned.  We will fight the cultists to the point that they will know that Rivers State is not a safe haven for them.

“But we require the support of the public. The security agencies have given us the assurances that they will do their best. For sometime, we have had relative peace before this unfortunate incident”.
