Wike declares ‘Bobrisky’ wanted, offers N30m bounty

Nyesom Wike, Rivers state governor, has declared one Bobrisky, a notorious criminal, wanted for inflicting terror on the people of Gokana LGA of the state.

Wike also promised to give N30 million to anyone with useful information that will lead to his arrest.

He made the pledge on Thursday while handing over 40 patrol vans equipped with communication devices to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) and police anti-kidnapping unit in Port Harcourt.

According to him, the bounty also extends to anyone with useful information on the identity of the persons who murdered a director with the state government during the Choba community crisis.

Wike said the state government will establish a trust fund to cater for the families of policemen who lost their lives to the fight against crime as part of his administration’s commitment to supporting security agencies.

“Rivers State Government is fully prepared and will do everything required to protect lives and property. Without the protection of lives and property, there will be no governance and development,” he said.

He also declared that the state government had proscribed all youth groups operating in the state because they had been hijacked by cultists.

“Anybody operating under a youth body henceforth will be arrested by security agencies. Before you contest for any youth body’s leadership, you must send the names to the DSS and Police for screening. If they are cultists, we will not allow them to operate,” Wike said.

Bobrisky, the notorious criminal, also shares a familiar nickname with Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju, controversial internet personality and cross-dresser, who is usually referred to as “male Barbie doll,” by his numerous fans.
