Seriake Dickson, the Bayelsa State Governor, has disclosed that there are politicians in his state who are killing people during elections. Dickson made the disclosure in Yenagoa, the state capital while receiving the state’s Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Mrs. Christiana Omanu Abiakam.
He stated that those politicians killing in the state are “complete criminals and terrorists.” The governor also cautioned security agencies in the state against being used as political tools. According to Dickson, “There are politicians in this state in some political parties who are complete criminals and terrorists killing people during election and after elections. They are involved in all major communal problems.
“They use most of your officers and men. As we speak, your men are guarding people of shady characters, parading as political leaders, including people against whom judicial process has commenced. “So, my charge to you is that, while this government will continue to support law enforcement agencies to do their jobs better, the government and people will no longer condone a situation, whereby uniform men are used to intimidate, kill and maim people in this state.”
