Uproar In Bayelsa Over Deployment Of 4 CPs In 14days



Pro democracy group, Bayelsa Good Governance Watch (BGGW) and the umbrella body of Ijaw Youths, the Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) yesterday raised dust over the deployment of four commissioners of Police (CP) to the state in the last 14 days, describing it as worrisome and alleged attempt to caused confusion in the state by the frequent and irregular deployments.

The group, Bayelsa Good Governance Watch (BGGW) took a swipe at the police hierarchy over the frequent changes of the commissioners of Police in Bayelsa State.

The Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) raised the alarm through the secretary general of the IYC, Mr Alfred Kemepado, that, it was indeed suspicious for the Force headquarters to post four commissioners of police to one state, within such a short period of time.

BGGW in a statement issued and signed by the convener,  Comrade Ebitimi Igori, expressed concern that no fewer than four new CPs have been deployed to the state in less than two weeks.

Igori, who spoke to Journalists in Abuja, said it is worrisome that the police administration was causing confusion in the state by the frequent and irregular deployments.

He raised the alarm that the frequent change of guards was part of a plot by APC leaders in Bayelsa State who are envious of governor Seriake Dickson’s giant stride in the security of lives and property,  to cause panic and destabilise the state.

“It is becoming clear that the police has become partisan in Bayelsa. From all indications, the police authorities have pandered to the whims and caprices of desperate politicians in the state. Their aim is to foment trouble and destabilise our state ahead of the 2019 elections. These politicians have no future in our state and as far as they are concerned, they must destabilise the state and return it to the old days of the swarming locust when Bayelsa was like a killing field.

“It is equally very embarrassing that in less than two weeks no fewer than four CPs have been posted to the state to replace CP Don Awunah, who has been redeployed to the Force headquarters in Abuja.”
