More deets and pictures when you continue….
The assassins returned again at about 5am to confirm that he was dead, by then the paramount ruler had been rushed to an undisclosed hospital for an emergency medical attention.
One of the people living with the paramount ruler was able to escape and alerted JTF of the presence of the said hired assassins, but the JTF very close by along Otiotio road rather resorted to asking multiple questions and never swing into action to rescue the situation.
“As at the time of filing this report,I have paid a visit to the paramount ruler at an undisclosed hospital and he is miraculously conscious now and doing well,in addition,a formal entry has been made too with the police,from where this report is being made.
“The other day, they accused him of fraternizing with Chief Timipre Sylva just because they want to get at him. For the records, Chiefson Awululu is not a politician and so one wondered how such would have been possible.
“The world should beware all this is happening under the watch of Seriake Dickson, who claims to be the chief security officer of Bayelsa state.
“Yenagoa is no more safe,Yenagoa is in its worse state security wise under Seriake Dickson.”
