Military Moves to Flush Out Suspected Militants in Volatile Bayelsa Town



The military has again moved into Peremabiri, a volatile coastal town in Southern Ijaw, Bayelsa State, after intelligence reports showed that militants were regrouping in the area.

THISDAY learnt yesterday that several suspected criminals have already been apprehended during the raid, including those loyal to a dreaded ex-militant leader who was becoming a defacto political leader in Peremabiri.

Spokesman of the Joint Task Force, Operation Delta Safe, Major Abubakar Abdullahi, was not immediately reachable, but it was gathered that the security agents entered the town to restore normalcy following several reports that residents had started living in fear as a result of the activities of the hoodlums.

Overjoyed residents of the area yesterday commended the operation, lauding the federal government for “coming to free them from the hands of the notorious criminal gang that has been terrorising their community.”
