It was a sad Tuesday for some Bayelsans, while it was a very happy day for others, when the news came to town that, investigation of some top aides to the Bayelsa State governor, Henry Dickson on allegation of financial fraud, and money laundering to the tune of #1bn  has led to the arrest of a former media aide to the governor, Mr. Abednego Don Evarada.
Mr. Evarada was said to have gone to the Port Harcourt Zonal Office to bribe the EFCC head, Mr. Ishaq Salihu with a whopping amount of #10million to stop investigations of the governor's aide on MDGS, Mr. Embelakpo who is being investigated by the anti-graft body on allegations of carting away the sum of #800million, and his wife also allegedly involved in laundering the sum of #200 million, giving a total of #1 billion.
The people of Bayelsa, especially the unpaid civil servants of the state who have been fasting and praying for their salaries to be paid this week, were disappointed when this information came. Some said it was the governor that was arrested, and some who hoped for salaries on the return of the governor, Henry Dickson, were sad and sorrowful until they left the state secretariat, careful observers have told Golden Pen.
The sources also told this medium that, the other group of people were sad, those who frowned at the governor over the cliams of no money to pay salaries, thanked the EFCC for exposing bribery attempt, by Mr. Evarada
Meanwhile, Mr. Evarada is said to being in the custody of the  EFCC, and shall appear in court soon. In the same vein, Mr. Embelakpo of the MDGS, and his wife at the conclusion of investigations may not escape prosecutions, our sources in Port Harcourt have said.
