The Nigerian Army on Monday debunked the claims by the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike that its operatives have captured the most wanted criminal in the state identified as Bobrisky.
Naija News understands that the claims of the Nigerian Army contradict Wike’s claim.
Recall that Governor while addressing leaders of Rumuolumeni community at the Government House last Friday, announced that soldiers of the Nigerian Army had arrested Bobrisky.
But in an interview on Monday, the Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, 6 Division, Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, debunked Wike’s claim as saying that the Nigerian Army did not arrest the suspected cult leader or any other cultist in Gokana local government area.
In his statement, Iliyasu said: “We don’t know what they are talking about. If such thing has happened, I would have been the first to inform you.
“When we got Don Wanny, I sent you pictures and the statement as early as 4:00am in the morning, because I couldn’t get all of you to come and take pictures yourself”.
“When we got Mene, I sent the statement and pictures to you even before you started calling me. But, the issue of Bobrisky, we don’t know anything about it”.
“If the 6 Division of the Nigerian Army was involved, I wouldn’t have waited for you to call before passing the information to you.”
Naija News recalls that Wike had last Thursday while handing over vehicles to security agencies placed a N30 million bounty on Bobrisky.
He later announced that the suspected cultist had been arrested by soldiers less than 24 hours after his promise to reward anyone with information that could lead to his arrest, an announcement that the Nigerian Army has debunked.
