In Bayelsa Governor Dickson invade High Court with thugs (Video)

  • Published:

Armed police officers were seen ushering the thugs into the law house.

The Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, led thugs to attack the Federal High of Nigeria in Yenagoa on Monday March 30.

According to a video obtained by Premium Times, Dickson, dressed in traditional Ijaw blazers, walked into the court premises in company of his police guards, as the miscreants stormed the court.

Armed police officers were seen ushering the thugs into the law house.

They disrupted court proceedings that had at least 15 lawyers, including a pregnant woman and two Senior Advocates of Nigeria in attendance.

They shattered properties in the facility, turned chairs in the court room upside down and scattered files on the floor. Lawyers were seen hiding under tables.

The Governor walked out of the court when the attack heightened.

As seen in the video, only police officer tried to help the injured people.

On why Dickson resorted to the dishonourable show; a serving Governor, Heineken Lokpobiri, who spoke to Premium Times said the court was in session to deliver a judgment on his case against the governor’s preferred senatorial candidate, Foster Ogola, over the validity of the latter’s candidacy for Bayelsa West senatorial district.

Lopkobiri claimed his party, the People’s Democratic Party illegally substituted his name with Foster’s, and had filed a suit accusing Foster of issuing false information to INEC.

He added that the attack on the court was the second, claiming that earlier, thugs had come to seal the court and stopped the Judge from entering the court, forcing an adjournment.
