Mayhem in Bayelsa

The Bayelsa State Police Command on Friday imposed a three-day curfew in the state after series of violent protests erupt due to the Supreme Court’s declaration of Douye Diri as the governor-elect of Bayelsa and nullified the election of David Lyon of the APC.

The curfew was announced by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Uche Anozia, on Friday.

Anozia said the curfew would last from Friday to Sunday.

The commissioner disclosed that eight persons had been arrested so far for violent conduct following the protest rocking different parts of the state.

He warned residents to obey the curfew as violators would be arrested.
