APC Responsible For Alamieyeseigha’s Death – Izon Brotherhood

Published

on

DSP AlamieyeseighaA socio-cultural organisation, Izon Brotherhood in the Diaspora, has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC-led federal government of being responsible for the death of first civilian governor of Bayelsa State and Governor-General of the Ijaw nation, Chief Dieprieye Alamieyeseigha.

Alamieyeseigha passed away in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State yesterday at the age of 62.

The brotherhood’s spokesman, Arc. Pere Jones, in a statement from Germany, said the recent extradition notice by the United Kingdom, aggravated the health of the former governor and his subsequent death.

Alamieyeseigha’s health was said to have taken a turn for the worse and was rushed to a hospital in the Rivers State capital where he slipped into coma as doctors were said to have battled to save his life until he passed on.

Jones lampooned the APC, who he claimed was behind the recent extradition notice that must have aggravated the health of the former Ijaw leader, who reportedly died of heart attack.

He also decried the alleged role of the APC, which reportedly influenced the inclusion of Alamieyeseigha’s name among those wanted by the UK government even after going through the whole legal hurdles of prosecution, conviction and later state pardon in Nigeria.

The Izon brotherhood spokesman was particularly critical of the role allegedly played by some Ijaw sons, whom he accused of working hand-in-hand with the APC to undermine the Ijaw nation

He said, “Clearly, it’s a shame to all our Ijaw brothers who are in league with the APC, witch-hunting and working against their fellow Ijaw brothers and sisters, being singled out for alleged corruption charges. They should be ashamed of themselves. Frankly no Ijaw man worth his salt should have anything to do with APC. With what they have done to our dear leader, Alamieyesiegha, no right thinking son or daughter of Ijaw extraction should be seen associating with the APC. His death is really unfortunate”.

    What a trash! State pardon? Well,that has nothing to do with the Brits where he fraudulently jumped bail. He was able to run,but could not hide. ‘The king has come that doesn’t recognize Joseph’. It’s unfortunate he passed away,may his soul rest in perfect peace.
