Ex-Gov. Sylva’s loyalist arrested in Bayelsa

Jonah Okah, a loyalist of the All Progressives Congress’ governorship candidate, Timipre Sylva, has been arrested by the police in Bayelsa State.

It was immediately unclear why he was arrested.

But his colleagues suspected the arrest may be connection with his recent posts on FaceBook, criticising the governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson.

In an SMS he sent to Mr. Sylva’s Media Adviser, Doifie Buokoribo, Mr. Okah wrote:

“I have just been picked up by the police from the office of the Commissioner of Police from Bayless State Command on the order suspected to be from the Bayelsa State Government. I’m being taken to SCID led by one SP Ani.”
