Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, said he had nothing to do with the killings of some security operatives in Nembe by unknown gunmen.
He was reacting to a statement issued by one Barrister Seighfa Tonye-Brown on behalf of the “Ijaw Young Professionals in Bayelsa State”.
In the statement, the non-existent Tonye-Brown and his faceless group made wild, unsubstantiated and irresponsible accusations against Sylva and the APC concerning the killing of four soldiers and a mobile policeman in Nembe.
However, a statement issued Saturday by Doifie Buokoribo, Media Adviser to Chief Timipre Sylva,said: “Sylva wishes to state categorically that he knows nothing whatsoever about the Nembe killings. Similarly, neither Sylva nor the APC that he leads in the state is privy to any plan to employ violence as a strategy to win the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
