In continuation of the anti-cult war of the Rivers State Government, Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, on Saturday led security agencies to rout cult members and kidnappers at the Eagle Island neighborhood of Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The governor and the new Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Foluso Adebanjo, supervised the demolition of two deadly cult members’ camps in the area.

One of the camps is located behind the Redeemed Christian Church and the other camp is known as Andoni camp.

Governor Wike announced that a police station would be built at the camp behind the Redeemed Church, while a community hospital would be built at the site of the demolished Andoni camp.

Addressing journalists after the security operation, Wike said that the hideouts in the area would be demolished so that law abiding residents would live peacefully.

He noted that the war against cultists and kidnappers will be sustained to ensure that people carry out their lawful businesses without molestation.

The governor called on residents to always avail the security agencies the necessary information on the hideouts of criminals for action to be taken against them.

“There will be no hideouts in the state. This war against cultists and kidnappers will be sustained.  We are happy with the results we are getting.

“We appeal to residents to continue cooperating with the state government and security agencies by providing the necessary information. All across the state, these joint raids are taking place and the results are encouraging. Rivers State is safe for business and residential purposes.”

The Rivers State Kidnap (Prohibition) Law Number 3 of 2009 as amended  by the current Rivers State House of Assembly and assented to by Governor Wike provides for additional penalties, including confiscation of assets derived from kidnapping, cultism and related crimes.

Also speaking, the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr Foluso Adebanjo said that several suspected cultists and kidnappers were arrested during the operation. This is the second operation that Governor Wike has led in the course of one week. (Independent)
