Bayelsa demands probe into Alamieyeseigha death in UAE

15 October 2014, 08:02Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Bayelsa State Government has called on security operatives in the United Arab Emirates to probe the death of Oyamuyifa Alamieyeseigha, the son of the first civilian governor of the state.

The 32-year-old son of Chief Diepreye Alameiyeseigha was found dead at the weekend in Dubai.

He was said to have committed suicide but there are fears he might have been murdered.

The state government,  in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said the call became necessary because of conflicting reports over the manner in which he died.

It added that this would afford the nation an opportunity to justify the confidence reposed in the security agents.

“Death is inevitable, adding however, that for a young man to leave at such a young age, when his services to the socio-economic growth of his State and country was most needed is sad,” part of the statement read.

The government prayed to God to grant the father, who it said had contributed immensely to the growth of his fatherland, and members of the Alamieyeseigha family the strength and fortitude to bear the loss.
