ISIOKPO: The Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area, Rivers State, Hon. Samuel Nwanosike, has dissolved Community Development Committee , CDC, Chairmen of 14 communities in area for allegedly aiding cultism.


Nwanosike, who announced their ouster at Isiokpo, headquarters of the council, also advised members of all cult groups and kidnappers operating in communities of the area to turn a new leaf and surrender their arms and ammunition to security agencies.

The chairman also accused the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who hails from the area, of failing to attract any federal project to the state in the past three years.

He said: “How can you come to a community where you claim to be a CDC chairman and people are going about with AK-47 rifles. We found out that majority of the CDC chairmen belong to Deygbam and Deywell. How can a community move forward with such persons.”
