Bayelsa: Gunmen kill policeman in politician’s house

Suspected gunmen have killed a policeman said to be a security detail to a politician in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

The policeman, whose identity is unknown as of press time, was said to have been killed when the hoodlums invaded the residence of the politician.

Although the politician’s identity has yet to be known, he is said to be a ranking appointee of the government.

It was learnt that the incident occurred on INEC Road, at Kpansia area of Yenagoa on Thursday.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi, was said to have confirmed the incident to members of the Civil Liberties Organisation.

It was however learnt that Ogunjemilusi did not disclose the circumstances surrounding the murder and the perpetrators of the act.

The CLO, led by the state’s Chairman, Nengi James, and former Secretary, Alagoa Morris, had visited the police boss to formally report alleged increasing cases of extra-judicial killings as well as harassment of innocent citizens in the state by the police.

One of the members of the CLO, who spoke on condition of anonymity, quoted Ogunjemilusi as saying that one of his men was killed by hoodlums.

He stated, “We were unaware of the incident until we got to the police command. The commissioner of police told us that he lost one of his men. We immediately condemned the killing of the policeman and asked the police to investigate the incident thoroughly in order to apprehend the mastermind of the act.

“The commissioner did not tell us the circumstances surrounding the incident. We condemned the killing of policemen in this country, not just in Bayelsa because all human beings are covered by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights and our various constitutions.”

It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the house of the politician about 3am on the day.

While their target escaped the hoodlums’ bullets, the policeman was not fortunate as he was reportedly hit and killed on the spot.

A source, who identified himself as Seiyabo, lamented the killing of the policeman and identified the deceased as a gentleman police officer.

He said, “He was a perfect gentleman, simple to a fault and down-to-earth. He was a very loving husband and a very friendly neighbour. I have neither seen him smoke nor drink alcohol; he was a true Niger Delta son and an example of how to be a policeman. He has never intimidated nor harassed anybody within our neighbourhood. He celebrated with those that celebrated and grieved with those grieving.”

When contacted, the spokesman for the Bayelsa state Police Command, Asinim Butswat, said he had not been briefed on the incident.

He said the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the area was on leave, adding that he would get full details of the incident this week and contact our correspondent.

“Marrying Adesua is the second best decision I made in my adult life” – Banky W

Published

on

Banky W and Adesua Etomi-Wellington are marking their third wedding anniversary today and the couple left sweet posts on Instagram.

The singer shared a video from their wedding and spoke of their love journey.

He wrote:

3 years ago, Susu and I made the decision to love each other forever. But the only reason forever is even possible, is because we made the decision to make God our foundation. And while a foundation is the part of the house that people don’t see, it’s by far the most important.

Because you can fix cracks in the walls, refurbish the rooms and repaint the halls, but you can’t get the foundation wrong if you want any chance of the house standing at all. The structural integrity of a house requires a foundation that is built to last.

I recently heard a Pastor say that love can’t keep a marriage going… he said it takes God and commitment. I think maybe he had a bit of a misunderstanding of what love really means. Because… well, God IS love. And love is commitment. Without both, it certainly isn’t love and it definitely won’t work. People sometimes think Susu led me to God. But it’s not true. God led me to Susu. And He has kept us through it all.

Marrying @adesuaetomi is the 2nd best decision I made in my adult life. The best was re-dedicating my life to Christ.

Susu, I am thankful for you, and grateful to you. You are everything I want and much more than I deserve. You mean the world to me and I intend to spend the rest of my life proving it. I love you now more than ever.
3 years down, I’m looking forward to forever.

I love you. Happy Anniversary Shuga.

“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud…It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
– 1 Cor 13:4..8

“… and the rains descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”
– Matt 7:26

Adesua shared the same video on Instagram and told Banky that apart from Jesus, he is the light of her life.

She wrote:

Three years? Seems like yesterday. Seems like forever.
Three years with my bestie.
Everyone knows you’re my husband but today I want to thank you for being my best friend.
The most attentive, loving, funny, caring, inspiring friend I have ever had.
I thought I knew how to love but omo, you have schooled me.
I never knew it was possible to be with someone this long and not have it be riddled with tons of fights. I’m glad for our low voiced intense conversations. Lol
You don’t make me feel crazy, I don’t have to yell before I’m heard. I don’t have to worry. I don’t second guess how you feel about me. I know I’m valued, as I should be.
Thank you bubz, for just being a correct human being. For the heart that you have. For being quick to be sorry when you’re wrong (whispers…even when you’re not. Lol) (I do the same sha)
For not putting your ego before us. For giving me a home that’s my safe haven. I’m grateful for the home we have built. I always look forward to coming home and it takes a lot to even get me out of the house. Lol.
God has done the most marvellous things these past 3 years. May he continue to be the 3rd cord in this threefold cord. As long as he lives and he shields and we keep him part of our lives, we will never be easily broken.
Apart from Jesus, you are def the light of my life.
May that light continue to shine brighter and brighter.
You, my darling are a force to be reckoned with and the world will remember your name.
@bankywellington I love you doesn’t seem to suffice anymore but I’ll say it anyway. I love you with every fibre of my being. Let’s do this till we’re old and grey and maybe in heaven too?
