Police Arrest Suspects Who Attacked Gov Wike's Father's Church With Dynamites

Security has been beefed up around the church belonging to the father of the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, which was attacked with dynamites on Saturday night by suspected arsonists in Port Harcourt.

Security operatives have also condoned off Ikokwu Junction to Azikiwe Street, where the church, Christian Universal Church International, is located in the state capital. Among the tactical units of the police present were the Anti-Bomb Squad, which had earlier carried out assessment of the church premises, and Eagle Crack (E-Crack).

Police chiefs who visited the scene of the incident include Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations), Assistant Commissioner of Police in-charge of Port Harcourt Area Command, ACP Bassey, Assistant Commissioner of Police in-charge of Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB).

Also, the governor’s father was said to have visited the church around 10am yesterday. Some members of his immediate family accompanied him on the visit to ascertain the level of damage but, they were denied entry by security agents because of unsafe nature of the building. 

The chairman and Mayor of Port Harcourt City Local Government Area (PHALGA), Victor Ihunwo, also visited the scene.

Meanwhile, the state police public relations officer, Nnamdi Omoni, a Superintendent of Police, has confirmed the arrest of three persons suspected to be involved in the attack. Omoni disclosed that the suspects were assisting police in their investigation, adding that the bomb department has swept the church. He said: “I can confirm the attack on the church and three suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack.

“They are helping us in our investigation. The church has been swept by the bomb department.”

The police spokesman alleged that suspected members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were responsible for the attack. At the time of filing the report, the street was closed to both human and vehicular movement.

  1. Was surprised when I heard his father is a pastor.

    God please, let peace reign. Say no to violence.

  2. When they arrest them in the North, they are hoodlums' not Boko Haram. But when they are arrested in the East, they are IPOB?😏😏😏😏

  3. I was feeling sorry for the old man till I got to the last paragraph, mtscheewwwwwwe!

  4. The person should talk oo so that he will leave Ipob alone

  5. They will be quick to arrest those ones because it concerns a governor but they will crawl like snails to fight boko haram and kidnappers.They should sell that country to the US Abeg and give us our share.

  6. I was actually waiting for the last paragraph. I thought it would have made the first paragraph. No be only IPOB na IPAD!

  7. While reading through, I just knew it would be directed at IPOB.

    So, Wike's papa is a church owner and he(Wike)is there killing innocent people...

  8. Not really surprised that it's the IPOB members, you can't imagine how violent and vindictive they can be, can't imagine!

    Just have a different view/opinion from them, hmmmm, you will be dragged, toasted and roasted!
    Woe betide you to say anything about their demigod NK, aaaaah, sorry is your name!
    I have never seen!

    1. I believe you went to school and should know better what allege means. Your hatred already formed your belief.

    2. Oh madam, I'm so disappointed .

      What a comment 😎😎😎😎 it was alleged please. Kai

  9. Good for him. But how is it that they can arrest criminals that attack the 'them them' but cannot capture the maniacs and terrorists that slaughter innocent masses endlessly _ BK or SARS???
