Why Rivers declared PDP chieftain wanted

Reasons emerged on Sunday why the Rivers State Government declared a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Eleme Local Government Area wanted.

Princewill Osaroejiji, the newly elected youth leader of the Party in Eleme Local Government Area, was declared wanted for allegedly “various criminal activities” in the area .

A statement by Pastor Paulinus Nsirim, the state’s commissioner for information said a bounty of Five Million Naira was also place on his head.

The statement also said that Prudent Hotel, Alode, Eleme and Etemeteh Hotel, Onne are to be demolished for flouting Government directive on the closure of hotels in the State.

Theportcitynews.com gathered from sources that the father of 5 was declared wanted after a fight with the local government’s covid-19 taskforce team.

According to a source knowledgeable in the matter, Osaroejiji fought with the Taskforce team over insistence that the hotels which he allegedly had stakes in be shut down following the state government’s directives.

The source said that due to the fact that he was just inaugurated a few days ago as the party’s youth leader in the LGA, his interference in the activities of the Taskforce was viewed differently.

She added that the failure to resolve the dispute locally led the LGA to report the matter to the state government.
