Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson has come out to say there was no governorship election conducted in Bayelsa on November 16, 2019.
According to him, the election conducted by INEC on that day was an insult to the people of the state.
He added that what happened on November 16 was simply a massacre of innocent persons by agents of the state.
His words, “There was no election in Bayelsa on November 16; what they claim as election in that day was an insult to our people. as we speak, Nembe is under siege by security agencies. The brutality they visited on the people on that day is unprecedented.”
Seriake said a minimum of 93 persons were critically injured and 12 killed by militiamen during the so-called election.
