Palpable fear has gripped residents of slums located in over 40 waterfronts in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, as the Nyesom Wike administration moves to demolish makeshift houses within the state capital.


Governor Wike gave the hint during a familiarization visit to the management of Nigeria Agip Oil Company in Port Harcourt. He said most makeshift houses serve as hideouts for criminals in the state.


The governor also directed the management of the Nigeria Agip Oil Company to provide electricity and good road networks to its host community Mgbushimini.


Meanwhile,the Obio/Akpor Caretaker Committee Chairman, Collins Onuwor, has called on the people to support government’s efforts to rid the state of cultists and criminal elements.


Onuwor made the call when the Bishop of Evo Diocese Anglican Church, Reverend Innocent Ordu paid him a courtesy visit at the council secretariat.


The Obio/Akpor CTC boss called on unrepentant cultists in the area to be remorseful and embrace Governor Nyesom Wike’s amnesty offer.


Reverend Ordu commended government’s efforts to dislodge criminals and cultists from the state.


The Bishop said its upcoming diocesan synod of Evo would treat issues affecting development of the state.
