Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Monday declared war against cultists and cult-related killings in parts of the state.

Wike specifically vowed that the state government would frontally tackle the menace and would not allow cultists to continue to unleash mayhem in the state.

The governor, who spoke at the Government House, Port Harcourt, when the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers paid him a congratulatory visit on his re-election, maintained that his administration would take the fight to the cultists.

“We will not allow these cultists who want to paint the state black continue to cause mayhem. We will take the fight to them. Enough is enough. These people cannot continue to kill our people.”

He disclosed that he met with the State Security Council on Sunday night and added that modalities were worked out on how to rid the state of cult-related killings.

Calling on the traditional rulers in the state to support the state government in the fight against cultism, Wike maintained that prompt information would be useful in tracking down the criminal elements.
