The leader of a cult group terrorising parts of Ogbologbolo community and its environs in Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State, Ikem Thankgod, has surrendered to the Ahoada Police Division.

GISTS VILLA gathered that Thankgod was the leader of a cult gang known as Greenland.

It was also gathered that the decision of the cult leader, popularly called, 2 Man to surrender to the police may not be unconnected to the recent massive onslaught of criminal elements and busting of their camps by the police, in collaboration with other sister security agencies in the state.

On Friday, Thankgod was reported to have submitted one AK 47, one G3, and one Mark 4 rifle, as well as AK-47 live ammunition to the police when he surrendered.

The Youth President of Ogbologbolo community, Buduzhi Ogbani told journalists that the decision of the cult leader is a welcome development.

He urged other cultists to surrender to the police to ensure peace and stability in the area.

“Around eight this morning, as we reached the police station, we saw a car. They told us that it is the DPO of Ahoada East.

“And then, Ikem Thankgod came with some guns and submitted them to the DPO and some security men that came with him.

“He submitted the guns and the DPO spoke to him on the need for peace. Thankgod accepted everything the DPO told him.

“Before this DPO was deployed here, we have been experiencing a lot of killings and harassment.

“My advice to other cultists is that they should submit their ammunition and their rifles.

“This DPO is really trying because, without him, this Ahoada East and West won’t have peace at all,” he added.
