Police declares Fubara's supporter 'General Asabuja' wanted

Amid the ongoing political crisis in Rivers State, the state police have declared Gabriel ‘General’ Asabuja, a former Niger Delta militant leader and supporter of Governor Siminalayi Fubara, wanted.

Asabuja has appeared in several viral videos making strong statements about the local government council crisis in Rivers State. He expressed his readiness to defend Governor Fubara’s position and ordered council chairmen, whose tenures had allegedly expired, to vacate their offices.

Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Tunji Disu, addressed the issue on Channels Television’s Politics Today (yesterday). He emphasized the need for Asabuja to come forward and answer questions regarding his statements.

“The 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,” Disu said.

The Commissioner condemned Asabuja’s actions, adding, “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.”

Confirming Asabuja’s wanted status, Disu added, “He is wanted. That is correct.”
