On Wednesday 13th May 2020 vigilante men in Bayelsa state intercepted a fully loaded 14 seater bus was along Patani/Bayelsa border along East West road.
The team of Vigilante led by their lead Me Dougbiye Alagba alongside men of other security forces interrogated the passengers of the bus of which they said they’re coming from Zamfara state.
The state security men ordered the bus back to its starting point since they could not explain why they’re going into Bayelsa.
According to the state Vigilante chairman, he said our men are fully on ground at all the entry point as directed by the state Governor Senator Douye Diri .
We received an intelligent information that some almajiri who could not find their way into other states are trying to enter Bayelsa for refuge.
The almajiri we intercepted were not able to state reasons why they want to get into Yenagoa and did not inform any government official about their travel plans. Therefore we had to send them back to where ever they came from.
