Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has sent the name of lecturers at the Rivers state University (RSU) to the Department of State Services (DSS) for profiling.
According to Leadership report, the governor said his administration submitted the lecturers’ name to the DSS for profiling over alleged activities of suspected cultists in the university.
Speaking during a meeting with Choba community leaders on Wednesday at the state Government House, Wike said the lecturers involved in cultism will also be sacked from the institution by the state government. He said:
“We are going after all cultists and kidnappers in the state. We will not spare anyone. Security agencies are prepared to tackle these cultists and kidnappers. For us, we are releasing further logistics support to them.”
Stating that when the state government begins its planned crackdown on cultists in the state, no pleading will be heard.
“At the Rivers State University, we have sent out names of all the lecturers to the DSS for profiling. Any lecturer who is linked to cultism will be sacked,” the governor said.
”As a lecturer, you should not use your position to create crisis through cultism in the university,” he added.
The governor assured the Choba leaders that his administration will provide logistics support to fight kidnapping and cultism in Rivers state.
