Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has commended the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Nigerian Army for the joint operation that led to the killing of Oluchi Igwedibia also known as Obatosu, younger brother of the late Don Waney.

Igwedibia, who was among the 32 cultists declared wanted by the state security council, was killed at Sabo Iyakpe, Etsako West in Edo State yesterday.

Obatosu allegedly played a prominent role in the New Year killings by Waney gang in Omoku.

Wike declared that none of those declared wanted by the state security council will go free, saying they will all be brought to justice.

The governor further declared that the N20 million bounty placed for credible information that will lead to the arrest of the wanted cultists is still in place.

He said those who participated in the New Year mayhem at Omoku and any other security infraction in the state will be traced and brought to justice.

Governor Wike stated that the government will continue to work with security agencies and other stakeholders to ensure Rivers remains safe.
