Youth shut down Bayelsa over alleged persecution of Jonathan's family

06 October 2016, 15:01

Yenagoa - Hundreds of members of the Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide staged a protest in Bayelsa state over the alleged persecution of the family of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Punch reports.

Human and vehicular movements along Sani Abacha Road and Isaac Boro Expressway in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, where the protest took place were on Thursday disrupted.

The protesters, who carried out their agitation under heavy security presence, also alleged that the Muhammadu Buhari administration had not been funding the interventionist agencies and projects in the Niger Delta.

As a result of the protest, business and commercial activities were disrupted for some hours in the metropolis.

Also, an unprecedented congestion was noticed in some parts of the metropolis as motorists and commercial drivers had to make a detour to escape the heavy traffic jam.

Passengers and commuters were stranded, as many were seen trekking long distances to get to their workplaces and business centres.

The security personnel, mainly riot policemen, blocked some parts of the roads, apparently to prevent a breakdown of law and order.

Meanwhile the forum of Niger Delta Clan Chiefs and Elders have labelled the Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi as being the arrowhead behind efforts to clampdown on former President Jonathan and his wife Patience Jonathan according to News24.

The forum which rose from an emergency meeting in Warri, Delta State, Tuesday, observed with dismay the heightened gang-up by political detractors within the current Government to completely tarnish the reputation of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
