Sylva, Lokpobiri behind killings in Bayelsa – Dickson tells Buhari


Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on Minister of State for Agriculture, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, and the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Timipre Sylva, to stop sponsoring killings and destabilizing peace.

The Governor also appealed to Buhari to prevail on his party leaders to stop aiding criminals and their harmful activities in the State.

Dickson accused them of conniving with some elements in Abuja to sponsor activities against the peace, security, stability and development of Bayelsa.

A statement signed by Commissioner for Information, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said the Governor made the comment while speaking at the monthly ‘transparency briefing’ in Yenagoa on Thursday.

He said, “I want to call on political leaders of Bayelsa to stop destabilizing and playing politics with law and order in our communities. They should stop what they are doing in camping criminals and terrorists.

“I have issued statements before calling on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to call his party leaders in this state to order, especially his Minister for State, Heineken Lokpobiri, who is the one that has armed and equipped the people that have subjected communities to this level of insecurity.

“All the guns and equipment they have been been using to terrorize the people are provided by Lokpobiri. I have evidence that by the 3rd of January, this Kareowei and his killers from Ekeremor were celebrating together.

“Bayelsa remains one of the safest in the country in spite of the nefarious acts being sponsored by some characters. Even the incident that took place at Ekeremor happened in Delta. The military operation came from Warri. Bayelsa is general peaceful, we are doing our best.

“Thank God that I am leading the team, I call on the community and youth leaders not to join them. Once those boys they use are arrested, they spend money to silence them to cover their tracks.

“They will only use you and abandon you. They don’t use their children, they use others. They create crisis for other people’s community. The media should join the sensitization.”

“We expect the FG which is in charge of the national security apparatus, I don’t believe that the president is aware, and I have issued a statement to that effect that he should take charge, these guys are working with some elements in Abuja.”

Dickson described the APC chieftains as common criminals and terrorists who should be cautioned without delay by the President.

According to him, Lokpobiri supplied the weapons which the militant was using to terrorise innocent members of the society.

Dickson further accused Sylva of leaving behind a legacy of cultism and violence as governor and advised him against giving guns to militant leaders to terrorise innocent persons.
