    The fish our elders say rots from the head down, Governor Wike of Rivers state should be held accountable for various criminal activities in the state. His creation of cult culture, used and dump these young people is the reason for these crimes. Making them to be relevant at election time and his inability to continue engaging them in revenue sharing in governance time is the cause of this melee.
