Police Seek Clues On Deadly Bayelsa Community Attack

By Nathan Nwakamma

Yenagoa  –  The Police Command in Bayelsa on Friday called for information that would lead to the arrest of suspects, who killed a resident of Korokorosei Community in Southern Ijaw.

The Spokesman of the command, Mr Asinim Butswat, made the plea in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yenagoa.

He said the killing carried out on Wednesday might be a reprisal attack.

Sources at Korokorosei community told NAN that the attackers shot dead a young man identified simply as Erelayefa.

Two pupils of a primary school in the community were also injured.

Sources said the home of the coordinator of the state’s oil and gas task force and three other homes were set ablaze.

Butswat said the attack might not be unconnected with the arrest of three suspects by men of the Joint Task Force and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps over vandalism of oil facilities.

He said the suspects were arrested over their alleged involvement in the December 2016 attack on the Tebidaba trunk line, operated by Nigerian Agip Oil Company.
