Bayelsa - The Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has said the recent bombings of oil facilities by Niger-Delta militants were denting the image of the state and the Niger Delta region as a whole.
Dickson spoke in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, following the brutal killing of three soldiers at a military outpost in Foropa, Southern Ijaw, on Tuesday morning.
The incident occurred about two days after suspected militants killed four naval ratings, an oil firm’s employee and his wife at a wellhead in Nembe creeks, Nembe local government area of the state.
Dickson in the statement condemned in very strong terms the unprovoked attack and killing of the security operatives.
According to him, such unwarranted attacks on the nation’s security personnel were putting the state and the region in bad light.
