Two suspects who allegedly detonated dynamite at Governor Nyesom Wike’s father’s church have been arrested.
The incident occured at about 12AM on Saturday at the Christain Universal Church International situated at 25 Azikiwe Street Mile 3, Diobu, Port Harcourt.
Our correspondent reports that youths from the area, arrested the suspects and handed them over to the police.
Assistant Chief Security Officer of the street, Collins Johnbull, in an interview with our correspondent, said they saw five men entering the church at about 9PM but thought it was church members.
