Few months after the state Governor, Nyesom Wike had placed a N30 million bounty on Bobisky’s head, saying he will reward any member of the public who can provide useful information that will lead to the arrest of the criminal.
Kidnap kingpin Honest Digbara, popularly known as Bobisky has died hours after he was arrested by the Rivers state Police command.
He died on the spot of multiple gunshot injuries and machete wounds sustained during the crossfire.
Bobisky arrested alive early Saturday at Korokoro in the Tai Local Government Area in a sting operation led by the Divisional Police Officer of Bori, Superintendent Bako Angbashim.
Bobisky is a popular armed robber and Kidnap kingpin whose criminal acts became almost a norm around the areas he terrorized.
However, he was arrested in the early hours of today, Saturday 12. The Operation Sting at Korokoro in Tai Local Government of the state that saw to his arrest was led by the Bori Divisional Police Officers, Superintendent Bako Agbashim.
Later after his arrest, he was paraded at the Headquarters of the Command at Mosco Road, Port Harcourt.
The name Bobisky has become a terror to many residents in the Ogoni area of the state as many criminal activities in the area have been directly or indirectly linked to him.
Addressing journalists, the state police commissioner, Joseph Mukan, said, “He was arrested through credible information at Korokoro Community in Tai LGA where he was hibernating with his gang of killers.”
He was said to be attending a funeral when policemen and vigilantes acting on a tip stormed the area but on sighting them, he opened fire leading to a gun battle which, on the spot, claimed the life of his younger brother said to be his driver.
Bobisky, a terror to many residents in the Ogoni area of the state, has been linked to most of the criminal activities recorded in the area.
He was paraded at the headquarters of the command on Mosco Road, Port Harcourt.
Kudos to the River State Police command for their relentless efforts in taking down the State’s Kidnap bigwig, Bobisky.
