The Rivers State Police Command has declared a former Niger Delta militant leader Gabriel ‘General’ Asabuja wanted.

Asabuja was declared wanted following a viral video of him issuing threats amid the crisis rocking the local government councils in the state.

Tunji Disu, the state Commissioner of Police, said the video of Asabuja caused a lot of panic.

Featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday, Disu said: “That video caused a lot of panic in the state. It gives a lot of concern to everybody even out of the state.

“I want to assure you that we are not going to take kindly to that. We have put actions in motion. We would get him at the appropriate time. We have gotten a lot of people of his kind.

“You cannot prepare a video and start firing and threatening people not to move around and do what they are expected to do in town and expect the police will fold their hands.

“We are working towards it. We have invited him and he does not want to come but we will do what we want to do. We are looking out for him. He is wanted. That is correct.”

The state governor, Sim Fubara, and former local government chairmen have been at each others’ necks following the end of their tenure.

Fubara had refused to elongate the tenure of the former chairmen and instead had sworn in new caretaker chairmen.
