According to community sources who spoke to Nigerian Tribune, the traditional ruler was abducted from his palace on Sunday, June 19, to an unknown destination where he was murdered, while the CDC chairman was dragged out of his house and brutally killed in his backyard. 

The trouble began when a popular crude oil bunkering Marchant who hails from the community mobilized his group to set up a crude oil bunkering camp in the bushes bordering Kalaba and Ikarama community sometime early this year. People are asking authorities to address the Bayelsa chaos with urgency.

When that happened, the gang started planning to kill our monarch and CDC chairman. In the process, a woman overheard them plotting the murder and gave them the information but they laughed it off and did nothing about it,” the source said. 

So, on Monday, the community woke up to the story that our paramount ruler has been kidnapped by some gunmen at about 3 am in his palace. We were all shocked and confused about what may have led to his abduction,”

That same day, the CDC chairman travelled to Yenagoa, the State Capital, to officially report the incident to the Police. While he was there, information came to some members of the community that the gang saw the CDC chairman in Yenagoa while he was reporting the incident to the Police and that they have sent some gunmen to lay ambush at his house. The murdered people are just another murder added to the Bayelsa chaos death toll.

When he drove into town, he was informed about this plot and advised not to enter the community but he refused. He said no harm will come to him. As he drove into the community, a popular Pastor stopped him along the road and pleaded with him to take a back road that would lead him out of the community.

This time he still refused to take the advice. Just as the gang had planned, the moment he got to his house about 7 pm, some men armed with guns and Matchette came out from hiding and dragged him to his backyard where they murdered him.

Bayelsa chaos is getting out of hand because the region has not been peaceful for a very long time.
