Ms. Otazi, was abducted at gun point on December 20 in Otuoke on her way to Ewoi Community in Ogbia Local Government Area for funeral.

A member of the family, Endurance Frank, said in a telephone interview on Tuesday that the kidnappers had contacted the family and demanded N40 million to free the victim.

    Dickson seems to be joking with the forth coming elections—-For Jonathan and not him–Sylva is the most dangeroeus human on earth—-He wants the governorship of that state and will do all in his power to grab it–Even if it means balckmailing his mother or kidnapping his father—Every Bayelsan should be prepared to sacrifice his time, energy and life for the protection of our tomorrow—No sane Ijaw man or woman should ever vote for Buhari–and his Fulani ati Yorub traitors in APC–Would Buhari have forced Akpos into a waiting van and beaten him up if he loved Ijaws–Frozen the account of Tompolo? Demonized Jonathan? Dickson and sylva do not understand the politics of the old regions–Sylva is too evil minded to be governor again—-His era is over–He sold the state to outsiders–Because he does not see himself an Ijaw man—–He believes his parents are from Abia state——As for Dickson who hardly ever pay workers salaries, we pray that he has a change of heart-during his next tenure—-Those doing the kidnapping in Bayelsa state are not indigenes of the state—They are the Anam people–Who are now located in every village in Bayelsa state-together with the Fulani cowhands———-Dickson should go hold a meeting with them–ask them to end the kidnapping or u force them out of the state –like Lagos state–period——-

      “Would Buhari have forced Akpos into a waiting van and beaten him up if
      he loved Ijaws–Frozen the account of Tompolo? Demonized Jonathan?”

      Yes, Buhari will, and so will other Nigerians.

    At the rate kidnapping is going on in Bayelsa, soon the only people left there will be GEJ and Patience in their fortress.
