The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has warned IPOB Members and criminals to cease fomenting trouble in the state or prepare to get killed.
Wike stated this on Wednesday at the project site of the dualization of the first phase of the Ahoada-Omoku road.
A video of the governor issuing threats suggesting an endorsement of extrajudicial killing is currently trending on social media.
“Let nobody deceive you (about) that juju; don’t ever you.
“All of you criminals (pointing while moving around) who are here, today, 2nd of June, 2021, repent.
“If you don’t repent, the period has come; you will die (and) your parents will not bury you. We will bury you like vultures – either your hand will be cut off or they will blow your head off.
“Your parents won’t even know that you’re dead. They’ll say their son went to look for money…”
Wike’s comment came the same that Twitter deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet threatening violence against secessionists.
