All youth groups in Rivers state have been proscribed by the state government, which stated that cultists had hijacked the groups.

The development was announced by the state governor, Nyesom Wike, at the Government House, as he handed over 40 patrol vans fitted with communication gadgets to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), See 4 Eye, Police Anti-Kidnapping Unit, Police Anti-Cultism Unit, Federal Road Safety Corps and Eagle Crime on Thursday, August 8.

“Anybody operating under a youth body henceforth will be arrested by security agencies. Before you contest for any youth body’s leadership, you must send the names to the DSS and police for screening. If they are cultists, we will not allow them to operate.”

Wike said there was need to proscribe youth groups, as cultists had taken over the groups. He said the vehicles and gunboats donated to the security agencies must be deployed to secure Rivers state.

The Rivers police commissioner, Mustapha Dandaura, in his remarks, said the new security vans will be used by the security agencies to tackle criminals across the state.
