Governor Diri demands investigation into youth de@th








Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has ordered an immediate investigation into the circumstances that led to the de@th of a Bayelsa youth, Goodluck Oviekeme.

He also ordered that an autopsy be conducted on Monday with representatives of the late youth’s family, the police, and the state government present.

The late Ovieteme was reportedly arrested by the police special squad, ‘Operation Puff Adder’ last Wednesday over an alleged robbery incident in his Biogbolo community.

Angered by his reported de@th in police custody, the community went on the rampage on Saturday.

The protest grounded vehicular movements for hours in Yenagoa, the state capital.

Diri spoke on Sunday at a thanksgiving service to mark Nigeria’s 61st independence and the 25th anniversary of  Bayelsa State’s creation at the King of Glory Chapel, Government House, Yenagoa.

He said the Bayelsa State Special Committee on Security, SWAT, and Human Rights constituted during the #EndSARS saga commences immediate sitting to investigate and unravel the circumstances of the youth’s de@th.

His Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Alabrah, in a statement, quoted the governor as assuring the people that anyone found culpable would be punished according to law.

He called on the youths in the state to maintain the prevailing peace, adding that his administration was aware of pockets of infractions and that those responsible would be brought to book.
