Again, pirates kill two in Bayelsa waterways

Gunmen suspected to be sea pirates have attacked a passenger boat in Bayelsa State killing two people.

It was gathered that the bandits who struck along the waterways of Brass Local Government Area, left many other passengers critically injured.

One of the passengers who survived the attack, identified as Saddam, said the ugly incident happened near the Obama Flow Station, in Okoromo, Nembe Local Government Area.

He said: “One of the deceased is called Pale (male) and he hails from Akipelai community in Ogbia LGA, while the second person’s name is Doris (female) from Delta State.”

He said they died when the pirates, after dispossessing the passengers of their valuables, shot sporadically while escaping from the scene.

Gunmen have been laying ambush in the creeks and waterways of the state killing innocent citizens and security operatives.

On Friday, suspected pirates ambushed an oil barge escorted by security operatives and killed two policemen, an operative of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and a civilian.

The military has proposed a second phase of Operation Crocodile Smile to calm the tensed waterways.
