    Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has declared that his administration  will  continue its anti-cultism and anti-kidnapping war until all criminals are rooted out of the state.
    Speaking after he supervised the demolition of two hideouts  of suspected cultists and kidnappers at Mini-Okukwu and Mini-Ihunwo suburbs of Port Harcourt,  Governor Wike announced that an aggressive  prosecution  scheme  for suspected cultists and kidnappers has been instituted by the administration.
    He said that nobody will be allowed to slow down the pace of development in the state through criminal activities.
    Governor Wike said: “We have zero tolerance for crime and criminality.  We are determined  to make this state safer for residents and investors. Therefore, government will always take action on credible intelligence gathered by security agencies. We will root on the spots where criminals use as hideouts across the state.”
    The governor said the expanse of land reclaimed from cultists and kidnappers in different  locations in the state points to the fact that the government must maintain the tempo.
    “We will not stop until these criminals stop disturbing our people.  We will  eliminate  criminality in Rivers State as we have taken steps to prosecute suspected cultists and kidnappers arrested by security agencies “, Wike stated.
    The governor called on residents across the  state to support the state government  and security  agencies  to maintain  the  tempo of the war on crime and criminality.
    He noted that credible  information  on  the  hideouts  of  suspected cultists and kidnappers will go a long  way  to  making the state safer.
