The Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, on Monday led a gang of thugs to attack a Federal High court in Bayelsa, a video obtained by PREMIUM TIMES has shown.
The video shows the governor, dressed in traditional Ijaw blazers, walking into the court premises, accompanied by his police guards and hangers on, before hooligans, including rifle wielding police officers, invaded and attacked the court.
The thugs were chanting “we no go gree, for this state, e no possible” as they walked into a court hearing.
Loud gunshots could be heard shortly before the hooligans began breaking glasses and destroying properties inside the court.
At least 15 lawyers, including a pregnant woman and two Senior Advocates of Nigeria, were in the court during the attack.
The governor walked out of the court premises at the peak of the attack.
Most police officers seen within the court premises during the attack either aided the attacker or looked on, idly.
Only one police officer was seen, in the video, after the attack, trying to help the injured.
The thugs upturned chairs within the court room, scattered files all over and shattered glass windows as lawyers ducked under tables.
A female lawyer covered herself with a chair.
