GRASSROOT REPORTERS gathered that that the native doctor is on the run.
The demolition followed intelligent reports and investigation on criminal activities allegedly carried out in the shrine.
It was gathered that the shrine was used for spiritual fortification of armed robbers, cultists and other criminal elements in the area.
The native doctor is said to be an expert in treating gun wounds of criminals who get into cross-fire with police officers. Three motorcycles, guns and other properties were also recovered from the shrine.
Speaking, the Council Chairman, Dr Frank urged criminal elements to steer clear of the area as the Local Government will not be a comfort zone for them.
He called on the good and peace loving people of the Local Government Area to be security conscious and reach out to him or the police on any suspicious person or activities capable of breaching peace and safety of lives and properties.
