Notorious cult leader, Bobrisky has been arrested barely 24 hours after Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, placed a N30m bounty on his head.

He was captured by men of the Nigerian army. Governor Wike has said he would be keeping his promise of paying N30m bounty to the soldiers.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed that Bobrisky has been arrested, but added that details of where and how he was arrested were still sketchy.

The governor had, on Thursday, evening declared the notorious cult leader wanted and had expressed dissatisfaction over the increase of cult activities in the state.

But speaking during a security meeting with leaders of Rumuolumeni community at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Friday, Wike expressed gratitude to the Nigerian Army “for capturing” the suspected cultist.

Wike also promised to redeem his pledge of N30m bounty to the Nigerian Army.

“The Army has captured Bobrisky of Gokana. I will pay the bounty that I promised to the Nigerian Army.

“Anyone who generates insecurity in Rivers State, I am ready to pay any amount to ensure the arrest of that person,” the governor said.

Wike, however, called on community leaders to supply information to the State Security Council on criminals in their communities for the security agencies to act frontally to reduce crime.

The governor reiterated the proscription of youth groups in the state, adding that any youth body that plans to operate must first be profiled.
