According to Obuebite, “we condemn the attacks on our members in Eweama and Okpoama communities. We call on relevant security agencies to investigate the incident and bring the culprit to book. Nobody has the monopoly of violence”.
“If the APC led Federal Government fails to put a stop to this wanton display of federal might and sheer brigandage and violence being unleashed on us by APC in Bayelsa State, we will be forced to defend our selves”
