Governor Nyesom Wike has declared Farah Dagogo wanted for hiring cultists to attack the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretariat in Port Harcourt.

Mr Wike disclosed this in a statement by his media aide Kelvin Ebiri.

The governor directed the police command in Rivers to arrest Mr Dagogo, a member of the House of Representatives from Degema Bonny constituency.

Mr Wike claimed that Mr Dagogo allegedly hired cultists who stormed the PDP secretariat in Port Harcourt and disrupted the screening of aspirants for various elective positions.

“The police must, as a matter of urgency, arrest Farah Dagogo, wherever he is and must be made to face prosecution. Already, some of the hoodlums hired by Farah Dagogo have been arrested and will be made to face the full wrath of the law,” the statement said.
