Tension in Bayelsa as police seal PDP secretariat

The leadership crisis rocking the Bay­elsa Chapter of the Peoples Democrat­ic Party( PDP) worsened yesterday when policemen from the Bayelsa State Po­lice command sealed off the state secretariat.

source gathered that the action of the police was to prevent the state party Chairman, Col Samuel Ino­koba (retd) from having ac­cess to his office.

Members of the State Ex­ecutive Committee of the party in the state had sus­pended Inokoba over allega­tion of diverting campaign funds meant for the presiden­tial campaign in Yenagoa.

The Presidency and the na­tional leadership of the party had upturned the suspension, as it recognised him as the chairman in all its meetings held with party stakeholders across the country.

Workers were shocked yesterday at the increased police presence at the secre­tariat as they were screened by armed policemen before gaining entrance into the complex.

Some of the policemen explained that they were under directive not to allow anybody access to the secre­tariat except staff.

The state Publicity Sec­retary of PDP, Barr. Osom Mackbere, who confirmed the increased presence of policemen, simply said, “all is well. We are okay and no cause for alarm.”
