The Nigerian Army has come out to deny the statement made by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezewo Wike of arresting the notorious criminal and Cultist popularly known as Bobrisky in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State. They however revealed that there soldiers are yet to apprehend the notorious criminal.
You would recall that barely 24hours the state government placed a 30 million naira bounty on anyone who will furnish the Nigerian Army the information that will lead to the arrest of the said Bobrisky.
Governor Wike in a statement at the Government house in Port Harcourt, revealed that the army has captured the Notorious Criminal.
Gist Reporters however gathered that the Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, 6 Division, Colonel Aminu Illiyasu, denied the claims, saying that the army did not arrest Bobrisky or any other criminal in Gokana local government area as claimed.
He said, “We don’t know what they are talking about.
“If such a 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,” he said.
The Rivers State Government is yet to make any statement as against the claims of the Nigeria Army denying having Bobrisky.
