Rivers State: End of Road For High-Status Cultists, Others

Rivers State

Highly respected individuals involved in the movement and proliferation of arms and cult related activities in Rivers State have been uncovered by the Nigerian Police Force.

The Commissioner for Police heading Rivers State Police Command, Joseph Mukan, stated that the identities of these people will not be revealed for public consumption yet, until the investigations are carried out. He made clear that they will be arrested and brought to book.

The CP, who divulged the above in an interview on a live radio show in Port Harcourt, further said the Command under his watch is drumming up heavily to eliminate illegal arms and ammunition in Rivers State.

He also disclosed that the concern of cultism as rightly observed is deliberate and sadly, some respectable individuals of the society are members of the occult world.

“I cannot mention names but they have been identified and we will take radical actions to bring them to book.

“We’ve shifted actions to focus on one notorious kidnapper, cultist and armed robber who goes by the name, VIP. Our strategies will not be made public. We’re presently following him and we will get him.
