Police Parade Suspected Criminals In Calabar

Bayelsa State government yesterday claimed it was unaware of any letter emanating from the State Police Command, alerting the government on a foreseeable breakdown of law and order in the state.
The Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Jonathan Obuebite, who stated this in Yenagoa, called on those spreading falsehood to desist from acts capable of causing disaffection among the people and a breach of the prevailing peace.
“The Government of Bayelsa State is not aware of any letter from the Commissioner of Police to the Bayelsa State Government,” he said.
Describing the information as baseless and unfounded, Obuebite urged the people of the state to disregard it and go about their normal businesses, noting that, the government would do everything possible to ensure that Bayelsa remains peaceful and stable.
Reacting to questions on the opposition party members representing Brass constituency II as well as Ogbia constituencies I and II who are yet to be sworn in at the state House of Assembly, he said the issue was strictly a legislative matter.
Obuebite pointed out that Governor Seriake Dickson, as a former lawmaker is a firm believer on the separation of powers among the three arms government, stressing that, the executive arm of government would never delve into the internal affairs of the legislature.
