Bayelsa Govt Sues For Calm Between Kabeama And Amatolo Communities

February 05, (THEWILL) – The Bayelsa State Government has called on the people of the Kabeama Community in the Sagbama Local Government Area and their counterparts of Amatolo in the Southern Ijaw Area of the state, to be calm in the wake of the tragic incident that occurred at the weekend.

The Deputy Governor, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Doubara Atasi, on Monday, said the government had been properly briefed about the incident and appropriate measures were being taken to ensure that justice was served.

Senator Ewhrudjakpo, who strongly condemned the dastardly act whereby an indigene of Kabeama allegedly beheaded his girlfriend on Saturday, described the sad development as totally unacceptable.


He stated that the security agencies have since swung into action, in line with government directives on the matter.

He, therefore, urged the Chiefs and people of the two communities to avoid utterances and actions that would escalate the issue, but rather cooperate with the government and the security agencies to ensure an amicable settlement of the matter.

The Deputy Governor particularly advised the youths of Amatolo, not to take the laws into their own hands by carrying out reprisal attacks on the Kabeama community.

He expressed the condolences of the state government to the family of the deceased and assured them of justice.
