Nnamdi Kanu Places N100 Million Bounty On Gov. Wike
Biafra separatist leader, Nnamdi Kanu has placed N100 million on Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, south-south Nigeria.
Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) placed the N100 million bounty following Governor Wike’s directives to security agencies to arrest anybody connected to the group.
Recall there was a clash between suspected IPOB members and security agents on Wednesday which left two police officers killed.
IPOB members reportedly burnt down Police Area Command, Obigbo, Afam Divisional Police Office, and a court, all in Oyigbo Local Government Area (LGA) of Rivers.
Reacting to the development on Friday night in a statewide broadcast, Governor Wike placed a N50 million bounty for the arrest of one Stanley Mgbere who allegedly led IPOB members to carry out the fatal attacks in Oyigbo.
His words; “Security agencies are directed to stop any form of procession or agitation by IPOB in Rivers or any part thereof and arrest and prosecute any person or group that identifies with IPOB in the State. The government will issue an executive order to strengthen the effective enforcement of these measures.
“Today (Friday), IPOB continued with its devilish and destructive activities at Rumukwurushi, Iriebe and Oyigbo in open defiance of the State Government’s curfew on human movements,” Governor Wike said.
Displeased with Governor Wike’s decision, Nnamdi Kanu doubled the bounty Wike placed on an IPOB leader in the state, placing N100 million on Governor Wike.
