The incident which is being described as a political gimmick to clinch the party’s ticket occurred over protest against the delegates list, which was alleged, was not the original copy that contain the genuine delegates for the primary election.

Meanwhile, Senator Douye Diri, Bayelsa State Governor,  has condemned the murder of  Mr Michael Isaiah, during the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) State House of Assembly Ogbia Constituency I primaries in Ogbia Town.

Diri in a statement issued by his Director, New Media, Kola Oredipe, said the isolated case was an orchestrated attempt by certain desperate persons to undermine the generally peaceful conduct of the primaries across the state.

He, therefore, called on the security agencies to “investigate the cowardly killing and ensure the perpetrators are arrested and be made to face the full weight of the law.”


Diri said that the PDP remains a peaceful party and would not condone such dastardly acts in the name of politics, and sends his condolences to the immediate family of the deceased and assured them that justice would be served.
