Some thugs dressed in T-shirts with All Progressives Congress printed on them, were said to have violently attacked the convoy of Governor Seriake Dickson.
Suspected thugs wearing All Progressives Congress (APC) T-shirt, on Wednesday, November 3, attacked the campaign train of Governor Seriake Dickson at the popular Swali market in Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.
ThisDay reports that the incident would have ended in a bloody brawl but for the intervention of security aides attached to the governor’s convoy.
The Director of Publicity, Restoration Campaign Organisation, Hon. Jonathan Obuebite, who described the attack as barbaric in a statement made available to journalists, said the attack confirmed what the people of the state had always known -that the APC is a violent party.
The statement read: “Clearly, the APC in Bayelsa State is not prepared for any election. They are prepared for war but as a disciplined party, as a peaceful party and with a governor like Dickson who came to restore peace in Bayelsa State.
“We advise all our supporters not to allow themselves to be provoked by the APC and its brand of violence politics. We must preach peace at all times and maintain law and order because we are people of peace’”.
