PHOTO NEWS: Bayelsa capital, Yenagoa, stinks as mountains of refuse take over

Dump site by Community Secondary School, Kpansio_Epie

A PREMIUM TIMES reporter who was in Bayelsa during the January 9 supplementary election in the state harvested the images below from the streets of Yenagoa, the state capital.

As at the time our man visited, some streets of Yenagoa were eyesores, as they were dotted by mountains of stinking refuse heaps.

Residents had to hold their noses as they walked past the refuse dumps, our reporter said.

It is unclear what the state’s administration is doing to clear the refuse and make the streets decent.
