The Bayelsa State Government says it has uncovered “an evil plan by desperate politicians to plant arms and ammunition in the farms and compounds belonging to the State Governor, the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson.”

Special Adviser to the Governor on Security Matters, Mr. Boma Spero-Jack, said in a statement on Monday night that some politicians who are desperate to hijack political control of the state were behind the criminal plot.

He said that “any attempt to tarnish the good image of the Governor would fail as Bayelsans and indeed Nigerians are clearly aware of the brand of politics and reputation of the governor as a politician of conviction and not violence.”

Spero-Jack therefore advised all politicians in the state to focus on their political campaigns rather than engaging in underhand tactics which he said do not win elections. He advised all politicians to avoid such desperation and unfortunate tendency towards violence.

He said that the security agencies should take the necessary steps to ensure that those behind the plot and their sponsors are investigated and brought to book stressing that political contests especially at the level of party primaries should be driven by the urge to woo delegates who are the critical factor in the election and not unnecessary acrimony.
