Governor Nyesom Wike on Sunday imposed a 24 –hour curfew on parts of Port Harcourt, the state capital, over upsurge in activities of cult gangs and related violence.

violence and killings around the adjoining areas of the
Okoro-Nu-Odu flyover in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.

the fact that the government has repeatedly warned misguided youths that engaging in cultism because of its
abhorrent anti-social effect on society.

weeks on the entire area along and around the Okoro-nodu
flyover up to one-kilometer radius from Saint Emmanuel

market with effect from Monday 23rd November 2020.

“Consequently, no form of trading, human or vehicular movement is allowed within the afore-mentioned restricted
areas until further notice.

Only staff and vehicles belonging to Julius Berger Nigeria
Limited are exempted from the curfew and associated
restrictions on movement so that construction work on the
Okoro-Nu-Odu flyover is not stalled.”

The governor directed security agencies are to enforce
strict compliance with the curfew and arrest and summarily
prosecute any person, trader or vehicle that may attempt to
violate the curfew.

“Again, we wish to warn that community leaders that allow
cultism and related activities to thrive unabated in their
communities would be treated as collaborators to the
resulting crimes and dealt with accordingly.

“We urge all citizens to be part of the efforts to curb cultism
in the State by reporting any suspicious cult activity, including gatherings and initiations in or around their
neighbourhoods to the security agencies for immediate

Governor disclosed that the State government will construct
the 7th flyover in Port Harcourt to traverse Ikokwu to
Azikiwe Street.

Local Government Areas to bear with the State government
for traffic challenges that they may encounter in connection
with the ongoing construction of the Oro-Abali and other

“As you know our promise to construct and five flyovers to
ease the perennial traffic challenges and accelerate socio-
economic development of the State is well on course. We
delivered and commissioned the first of the initial five
flyovers, (the Rebisi flyover) to the glory of God and the
good of our State, while construction work on the rest has
reached advanced levels of completion.

“Indeed, the Okoro-nu-do flyover is next on the line to be
delivered and commissioned, latest, in the first quarter of

Two days ago, the State Executive Council approved the
award of the contract for the constructing of the sixth
flyover along the Oro-Abali (Kaduna street) intersection of
