Dickson gives criminals last warning


From Femi Folaranmi, Yenegoa

BAYELSA Governor, Se­riake Dickson, has vowed that nobody will be allowed to get away with violence and bloodshed in the state.

Dickson gave the warn­ing during his series of meetings with heads of se­curity agencies, traditional rulers, community leaders and youth groups over the spate of killing of security operatives in the state.

A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Dan­iel Iworiso-Markson said Dickson, during the meet­ing, expressed govern­ment’s determination to stem the tide of violence, criminality and brigandage in and outside the state.

Dickson, who stressed the need to curb the spate of criminal activities such as kidnapping, pipeline vandalism and the attack on law enforcement agents in the state, urged the peo­ple to work closely with security agencies towards apprehending the perpe­trators.

Speaking on the recent killing of three security op­eratives, Dickson recalled the military’s invasion of Odi in Kolokuma/Opo­kuma and Odioma in Brass Local Government Areas, adding that the incidents should serve as a lesson to other communities.

He, therefore, called on community leaders to collaborate with security agencies to maintain law and order in their domains to avert a recurrence, say­ing security was a collective responsibility for all.

His words: “Nobody within and outside the state would be allowed to create havoc and make Bayelsa to be a place for violence and bloodshed.”

Condemning the rate of kidnapping in recent times, he restated the gov­ernment’s position on the payment of ransom, as ne­gotiating with kidnappers would also be a crime in the state.

Dickson decried the ac­tivities of oil pipeline van­dals, which he noted, was adversely affecting the rev­enue of the state, coupled with the degradation of the environment and called on those engaged in the act to desist.

In an interview with­newsmen shortly after the meeting, King Okpoitari Diongoli, Ebedaowei of Opokuma kingdom, King Mozi Agara, Ebedaowei of Kolokuma clan and King Funpere Akah, Ebena­naowei of Gbarain clan, urged the government to strengthen the traditional institution to partner secu­rity agencies to foster peace and stability in their areas.

Also in his remarks, Chairman of the Commu­nity Development Com­mittee in Agbobiri-Okordia clan, Mr. New-World Ele­kele said community lead­ers should be empowered to complement efforts of security agents.
