Governor  Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state has issued a warning to kidnappers and pipeline vandals, asking them to desist from their illegal act.

He said this while launching the gun boats purchased for the Bayelsa command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

Dickson said “So, I want to use this opportunity to call on all misguided youths in this state that have decided to create instability, be they kidnappers, pipeline vandals, sea pirates or crude oil thieves, to desist from those nefarious acts.

“With the support of our government, security forces and the cooperation of our citizenry, we are determined to crush all those that are involved in one criminal act or the other in our state.”

He also said “I hope to call on surveillance contractors, who, instead of being an asset to the security forces and the government, have become liabilities. I trust that CG will take appropriate actions against such people.

“I want to also call for collaboration between community leaders and the police, the military, the paramilitary, by reporting misguided elements that live in their communities to the security forces.”

Seriake Dickson  reportedly sanctioned 500 civil servants in the state for supporting the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the recently held governorship elections.
