January 10, 2016 – Bayelsa State Election Violence: Dickson Weeps As Snipers Kill 4 Policemen, 2 Soldiers & 8 Civilians 

At least 14 people died during the supplementary election that held yesterday in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa.

Among those allegedly killed were four policemen, two soldiers and eight civil­ians.

In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Daniel Iwor­iso-Markson, the governor accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains of masterminding the killings of innocent Bayelsans in Brass, Ekeremor, Nembe and Soth­ern Ijaw and wondered why the APC would kill to capture power.

The governor wept for those who were killed and prayed for the repose of their souls. While calling for the arrest of the perpetrators of the crime, Governor Dickson condoled the families of those who have lost their dear ones.

    Is pitiable that some Bayelsans hv connive with the enemies of the Ijaw nation to unleash mayhem and brigandage on innocent Bayelsans all in the name of politics…..
    I see this as a well orchestrated plan by the APC led federal government to disunite Bayelsans and most especially the ex-militants, so as not to oppose or give them problem…….

    Arise O’ Sleeping Youth of Nigeria!!!
    Awolowo was (37), Akintola (36), Ahmadu Bello
    (36), Effiong (36), Balewa (34) and Okotie-Eboh
    (27), Enahoro (27) led the struggle for
    independence after the death of Macaulay. Only
    Zik was 42 at the time.
    In 1966, the first coup was led by: Kaduna
    Nzeogwu (29) and countered by Murtala
    Mohammed (28), Theophilus Danjuma (28),
    Babangida (25), Nanven Garba (23), Sani Abacha
    (23), Shehu Musa Yaradua (23), and brought into
    power Gowon (32), Ojukwu (33), Obasanjo (29),
    Buhari (24).
    Most of the military administrators who governed
    the states under the successive military regimes,
    most of whom are governors now, were under 30
    The brief democratic dispensation which
    interjected the military interregnums also saw the
    House of Representatives in particular populated
    by majority of members under 30 years as well as
    some senators.Under 30s were also not in short
    supply with appointments, we have examples of
    MT Mbu who became foreign affairs minister at 23
    and Pat Utomi who became a presidential adviser
    at 27 and so on and so forth.
    Why is it that this age bracket is today still
    sleeping in 3 seater chairs in their parents’
    Why is it that this age bracket is today still
    collecting pocket money from their parents?
    Why is it that this age bracket is today still writing
    Why is it that this age bracket is today still
    sagging their trousers?
    Why is it that this age bracket is today still
    searching for jobs?Why is it that this age bracket
    is today no longer qualified to even be leaders of
    youth wings of political parties?
    Why is it that this age bracket is today so docile?
    Why is it that this age bracket is today still
    incapable of feeding itself?
    Why is it that this age bracket is today barred by
    law from even aspiring to certain political offices?
    Why is it that this age bracket is today
    incapacitated, unwilling, unable and incapable of
    asking questions?

    My brother @ Justice,,The fear of the unknown is the answer to your numerous questions…your points are valid..the strata within which i cover,I’ve been making my presence felt towards rectifying the ills…”A society is not doomed because it is governed by evil people,but by the inactivity of the good people” (Enoch Oarhe) and as such I stand to be counted. I call on other youths and those young at hearts to start making that CHANGE they want to SEE….Because in their been docile lies the extinction of youthful involvement in Nation building.
