Governor Nyeson Wike of Rivers State has placed a N50 million bounty on a leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) identified as Stanley Mgbere.

The governor reiterated its ban on the activities of the IPOB across the state in conformity with the proscription of the group by the Muhammadu Buhari led federal government.

This was disclosed during a state broadcast on Friday by governor Wike who noted that Mgbere led members of the IPOB to perpetrate destruction of lives and property in Oyigbo Local Government of the state.

He said, “Security agencies are hereby directed to stop any form of procession or agitation by IPOB in Rivers State or any part thereof and arrest and prosecute any person or group that identifies with the membership or activities of IPOB in the State; Government will issue an executive order to strengthen and ensure the effective enforcement of these measures.”

“Today, 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.

“Oyigbo town has practically become the group’s main operational base in Rivers State, from which they have become notorious for launching premeditated violence and terror on the State, businesses and innocent citizens.

“As a people, we have become very much unsettled by the terrorist acts and endured the continuing irritations, violence, destruction and provocations of IPOB in and against the people of Rivers State.”

Wike while adding that he would convene a meeting with leaders of youth groups on October 26 to device measures to counter all activities of IPOB condoled with families of deceased and victims of destruction in the state.
