From Amos Odeh, Yenogoa
There was pandemonium in the early hours of Friday as unknown gunmen invaded Ogila-ama community in Opuama Kingdom in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
The incident which occurred at about 5am and lingered on to 7am, saw the yet-to-be identified gunmen setting some buildings in the community ablaze.
Pastor Lorhi-bolouikie Ogoro, a native of the Ogila-ama, community told our correspondent that he received a telephone call from his sister and others in the community informing him of the attack.
He said he was told that before gaining access into the community, the gunmen who came in three boats, shot sporadically.
Mr Ogoro appealed to the state government to come to the community’s rescue and arrest the situation.
The invasion of Ogila-ama is the most recent community coming under attack in southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, after Peremabiri Community was attacked twice in a space of one week.
However, the spokesperson of the Bayelsa State Police Command, Superintendent of Police, Asinim Butswat noted that Commissioner of Police, Mike Okoli, has despatched detectives to ascertain what happened in the community.Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
