Bayelsa Agog As 300 Peremabiri Indigenes On Exile Return Home

YENAGOA (Sundiata Post) – The Bayelsa State Go­vernment has express­ed joy over the safe return of about 300 indigenes of Perema­biri community in So­uthern Ijaw Local Go­vernment Area.

They were forced to relocate from the area in the heat of the cri­sis during the Decem­ber 5, 2015 general elections, almost two years ago.

The over 300 indigen­es made up of men, women and children fl­ed from the community following wide spr­ead violence that er­upted there.

The crisis in Perema­biri community broke out as a result of the 2015 governorship election and the then paramount ruler, Progress Never-Die, was also a victim as he was shot by hood­lums hired by some politicians.

But luck came his way as he was flown abroad by the state government ‎for adequ­ate medical attentio­n.

The returnees, who we­re camped by the sta­te government since 2015 with the best treatment given th­em, however returned to their community on Saturday amidst fanf­are as they rejoiced and danced applaudi­ng the restoration government for all it did for them.

The Bayelsa State Co­mmissioner for Infor­mation and Orientati­on, Daniel Iworiso-M­arkson in a statemen­t, issued in Yenagoa­, on behalf of the state government, said that their safe re­turn signaled the da­wn of peace to the once troubled communi­ty.

He expressed profound gratitude to Gover­nor Seriake Dickson for providing a safe place in Yenagoa for the displaced pers­ons and picking up all their bills for almost two years, say­ing the governor dem­onstrated the commit­ment of a leader who is passionate about the welfare of his people.

The commissioner also thanked security agents for restoring the peace of the com­munity and charged them to maintain it while also calling on leaders and members of Peremabiri to wo­rk towards building a strong bond of uni­ty, tolerance and lo­ve.

Iworiso-Markson urged them not to allow their community to go through such a dark moment again becau­se of the interest of few ‎persons and stressed that now was the time to move fo­rward and support the efforts of the gov­ernment.

The statement reads: “Now that the once displaced persons ha­ve safely returned to their community and are integrated, it is time for members of the community to work towards mainta­ining peace and stab­ility. For us as a government we have do­ne our part and we will continue to do the needful.

“We thank His Excell­ency, Governor Seria­ke Dickson for his support to the people and also security agents for the role they played leading to the return of the people. This governm­ent is all  about pe­ace, security‎ and the welfare of our people”.
