Leadership, however, reports that the deputy director, Army public relations, 6 Division, Colonel Aminu Illiyasu, stated that neither Bobrisky, nor any other cultist was arrested in Gokana LGA by soldiers.
“When we got Don Wanny, I sent you pictures and the statement as early as 4am in the morning, because I couldn’t get all of you to come and take pictures yourself.
“When we got Mene, I sent the statement and pictures to you even before you started calling me. But, the issue of Bobrisky, we don’t know anything about it.
