Government wish to condemn in the strongest terms the killing of two people in Yenagoa this morning. Government is working closely with the security agencies to unravel the perpetrators of this dastardly act and bring them to book.
Governor Dickson is deeply sad by this incident and wish to condone with the families of the deceased. We wish to debunk claims and insinuations that the persons killed are security aides of the governor. They are actually repentant militants working closely with JTF, the police and SSS in the entire Niger Delta region and were in Yenagoa working with the security agencies. Their names are British Egena and Orlando Owodo.The government of Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson has zero tolerance for crime and criminality. Government is working very hard to safeguard the lives of all Bayelsan
