There was tension in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, yesterday, following heavy movement of security patrol along the major streets as a result of planned protest against the sacking of five out of the eight local government chairmen in the state over alleged gross misconduct and failure to render proper account of stewardship to the State House of Assembly.
The sack of the council chairmen, Chief Tiwei Orunimighe(Southern Ijaw), Ngo Sylva (Brass), Eddy Julius (Ekeremor), Pere Pereotu (Sagbama) and Sammy Boy(Ogbia.) came when they have six months to the end of their tenure. The sacking of the chairmen formed part of the recommendations of the report by the State House of Assembly on the probe into the accounts of the councils.
