Bayelsa Violence: Police Extend Curfew Until Sunday by fergie006: 12:49am On Feb 18
The Bayelsa State Police Command has extended the dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed in the state.

The Commissioner of Police in Bayelsa, Mr Uche Anozia, announced this while briefing reporters at the Command’s Headquarters on Monday in Yenagoa, the state capital.

This followed a three-day curfew earlier imposed by the police as a result of the violent protest that erupted the state.

The violence was the aftermath of the Supreme Court Judgement which sacked David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the governor-elect in the state on Thursday last week.

Briefing reporters, the police commissioner explained that the command reviewed the security situation in the state.

He noted that after credible intelligence, they decided to extend the curfew but reviewed the time.

Anozia said, “In light of credible intelligence available to the command viz-a-viz the prevailing security situation in Bayelsa State, the command has deemed it necessary to review and extend the curfew to Sunday, 23 February 2020, with effect from today the 17 February 2020, from the hours of 10pm to 6am.”

“Members of the public are advised to remain indoors as security agents will be out to arrest anyone who violates the curfew and such outlaws will be prosecuted,” he warned.

people will protest when they feel cheated... the way our supreme court dishes out conflicting judgements on similar cases nowadays is a big threat to our democracy and fundamental rights to exercise franchise....

Oshiomole is still walking a free man. Imagine PDP national chairman saying nobody will be sworn in as Imo state governor after S/Court decision.

Treasonable charges from all corner, DSS will go to his house at 2AM to arrest him.

These guys will not remain in power forever, they have taught other political parties how to deal with them when they leave office

It is well. When you steal something then you need all the security in the world to protect yourself. A governor chosen by a minority. Thanks in no small measure to highly esteemed 5 persons. Indeed it is well.

I don't FEEL for PDP either.
It was the STUPIDITY and IMPUNITY of the PDP that gave birth to the MONSTER called APC.

BOTH are USELESS.
As long as I am concerned, BLACKS have nothing to offer themselves.
That's the only RACE that hates itself so much.

There is no curfew in Bayelsa. My friend there said normal activities are going on big time. This curfew is only audio curfew.

Better stay safe than sorry especially if that friend invited you out at those hours.

Why is APC so prone to violence?
I can remember PMB once said that the baboon and the gorilla will be soaked in blood if he lost to JEG.

Advise your people to stop violence. Advise your chairman to stop making careless comments. If all lives matter to you, then tell your party to stop breeding thugs. It is obvious that APC have acquired more thugs than PDP.

You beat a child, at the same time, you don't want the child to cry.

It is clear that Bayelsa people are tired of PDP, no thanks to the judgement of the Supreme Court
