OnyxNews Nigeria reports how notorious cultist Bobrisky was arrested in Rivers.
This online news media reports that Bobrisky is dead. The most-wanted armed robber, kidnapper and cultist, Bobrisky of Gokana who was earlier arrested on Saturday by the Rivers State Police Command died the same day.
The arrested criminal died from wounds sustained during a fierce gun battle with the Police operatives before his arrest. Bobrisky, whose real name is Honest Digbara, was arrested on Saturday morning at Korokoro in the Tai Local Government Area of the state.
The distress operation that led to Bobrisky’s arrest was led by the Divisional Police Officer of Bori, Superintendent Bako Angbashim.
Before his arrest, the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike had earlier expressed worries about plans by the wanted cultist to unleash confusion in the south-south state.
The Rivers State Governor had reported that Bobrisky planned to cause security breaches in the state and placed a N30 million bounty on his head, for any member of the public who can provide useful information that will lead to the criminal’s arrest.
