BAYELSA POLICE MAY APPEAR IN COURT OVER ILLEGAL ARREST OF IYC CANDIDATE
An angry family source who is a senior officer in the State Judiciary had told Golden Pen that the police had taken the laws in to their hands by conducting themselves as Political stooges, and must be called to explain themselves at the appropriate quarters, if Mr. Ikiba is not released on time. Our source stated that the Police Officer in charge of Homicide in the State Criminal Investigation Department has threatened to slam frivolous charges on the IYC chairmanship aspirant that he was one of the militants in the camp of Chief Tom Ateke in 2005 and that the Police was looking for him since then, a claim the family source described as ridiculous and unfounded explaining further that Mr. Ikiba is the former Chairman of Mini/Ikensi Local Government Area in the State a position that kept him close with government and the police without such accusations until he made known his ambition to contest the IYC chairmanship position. The Ikiba family had therefore called on the Police to release Mr. Ikiba without delay to enable him contest the election.
