Bayelsa State government yesterday assured the delegation of Ijaw Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, IMPAN, of quick and unconditional release of the kidnapped Ijaw music legend, Pereama Freetown.
Speaking through the special adviser to the governor on security, Mr. Sparo Jack at the Government House, Yenagoa, the governor pleaded with the people to be patient with the government, assuring that would not relent in fishing out the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
The governor further called on musicians to prayer for the state, and assured the Ijaw nation of his support and government’s determination to continue with the sustenance of peace, and promised to flush out the few criminal elements from the state.
Hon. Jonathan Obuebite, director of Media and Publicity to the Restoration Campaign Organisation, asked the abductors to resist the temptation of playing politics with issues as this.
The government commended them for the peaceful protest and advised against the hijack of the process by politicians.
Speaking further, Hon. Obuebite assured the delegation of the timely release of Chief Freetown.
One of the musicians, Allabo Otubo spoke on behalf of the protesters and pledged to work closely with the state government for the unconditional release of their colleague.
