Controversy in Bayelsa Over Extra-Judicial Killings


4 October 2011

The Bayelsa State government set up a special security outfit in 2010 to entrench peace and security in the state. One year later, Osa Okhomina writes that the outfit may have been turned into a witch hunt tool against innocent citizens and opposition political parties in the state.

When the Bayelsa Governor, Chief Timipre Sylva commissioned over 30 Hilux patrol vehicles and established the dreaded special security outfit code named 'Famou Tamgbe' on September 10, 2010, he never knew he had opened an outfit that would drag his administration into the murky waters of controversy that lasted twelve months.
