Thousands Of Cult Members, Kidnappers, Embrace Amnesty In Rivers State


Yesterday, about 2,000 cult members embraced the amnesty declared by the Rivers State Government, with cult members, who were involved in kidnappings, killings and armed robberies in the past, surrendering their weapons before members of the state Amnesty Committee.
Some of the weapons surrendered by them included AK 47 rifles, G3, dane guns, dynamite, NATO gun and detonators. Speaking shortly after receiving weapons from the repentant militants, the Chairman of the Amnesty Committee, Mr. Ken Chinda, explained that peace was expected to return to Ikwerre council area after the event.

Identifying the cult groups as Iceland and Debam, Chinda charged them to not to go back to crime, adding that the state government was sincere about helping them to achieve their dreams.

Chinda warned that soldiers would fish out militants that refused to accept the amnesty. He also declared two of the cult leaders, Samuel Nkasiobi, aka Italian, and Okechukwu Amadi, aka Gunboat as enemies of the state for refusing to accept amnesty.
