Governor Diri Vows to Take Swift Action Against Those Playing Politics With Security in Bayelsa Community

Governor Douye Diri Warns Mischief Makers as Insecurity Threatens Peace in Opu-Nembe

In the face of increasing insecurity in Opu-Nembe, which is jeopardizing the peace in the Nembe Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Governor Douye Diri has issued a stern warning to troublemakers in the community. The situation escalated when some chiefs claimed that they were forcefully exiled from the community, while Chief Robert Efere, the Secretary to the Nembe Council of Chiefs, denied any targeted violence against the chiefs.

Governor Diri expressed his determination not to tolerate any disturbance in Nembe-Bassambiri, stating, “Let me make it clear that those who have been playing politics with security in the area will face consequences, regardless of their status.”

“We were exiled for attending a social event”

Addressing journalists in Yenagoa on Saturday, several chiefs from the Opu-Nembe community revealed that they were banished from their own community simply for attending a social gathering in Yenagoa. They fervently appealed to the security agencies for help and shared the details of the incidents that led to their exile.

To their shock, even the community woman leader was not spared and was also exiled from Nembe. The chiefs urgently called upon the government to intervene and swiftly assist them.

During their visit to Opu-Nembe, Channels Television met with Moses Ayerite, the accused Youth President, as well as the Secretary of the Opu-Nembe Council of Chiefs. They sought to gather more information regarding the situation.
