Security Aide To Local Government Chairman Arrested For Kidnapping In Bayelsa (Pics)

In relations to the recent upsurge of kidnappings and sea-piracy in Brass local government area of Bayelsa state, one Mr Loveday Digighabofa a.k.a Sayi, a security aide to the Brass council boss, Hon. Victor Isaiah, and Chairman of Twon Brass action committee, has been arrested along with one other for heinous crimes in the local government.

On 13th of June 2018, Brass council boss, Hon. Victor Isaiah, named Loveday Digighabofa, as Chairman Twon Brass Action committee, to handle cases of crime and maintain peace in the area, after the dissolution of the existing one.

A journalist, John Ayebabaralate Okhai shared the news online. He wrote;

On the 13th of June, 2018, the caretaker chairman of Brass local government area, Mr Victor Isaiah announced the dissolution of the “Action Committee”, a community based organisation in Twon-Brass, the council's headquarters.

This decision, evidently laced with mischief, was said to have been arrived at, under a false pretence that the committee as constituted, is made up of rogue elements. According to Mr Isaiah, they were involved in drug peddling, kidnapping and all manner of crimes, even when none of them has ever had any criminal record.

In place of the dissolved committee, Mr Isaiah said he has put in place an interim committee with the integrity of a pope, to ensure the safety of the community in collaboration with security agents.

Contrary to what Mr Isaiah would want the world to believe, the action committee he constituted is actually a committee of rogues.

One Erebo Godwill, who is the P.R.O of Mr Isaiah's Action Committee, was said to have transferred the sum of N7,500 from the account of a lady called Yawo, without her consent. Upon her discovery, she alerted some Twon youths, who in turn summoned Mr Erebo. Confronted with the fact of his crime, he owned up to it.

While still under questioning, some of Victor Isaiah’s boys arrived the scene with the police, alleging that Mr. Erebo was held hostage unjustly. But their attempt to intimidate the youths and free Erebo was resisted, as he owned up to have defrauded Yawo.

It would also interest the general public to know that, Mr Loveday Digighabofa a.k.a Sayi, the man appointed by Mr Isaiah, as the chairman of the same “Action Committee” has been apprehended by security operatives for alleged kidnapping and sea piracy.

Upon his arrest, Mr Isaiah ensured he was released. He has been re-arrested, evidently due to the overwhelming evidence against him in the alleged case of kidnapping and sea piracy.

While we commend the security agencies for a job well done, it is important to call on them to ensure due diligence in prosecuting this matter, which is in the overall public interest. Therefore, no external interference should be condoned, perhaps, this may end the scourge of kidnapping and sea piracy in our land.
