Gunmen In Military Camouflage Attack Palace Of A Prominent Monarch In Bayelsa

 


Gunmen on Saturday attacked the country home of King AmalateTurner at Opume in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa destroying household furniture and electronics. 




Prominent Bayelsa Monarch, King Amalate Turner of Opume in Ogbia Local Government Area, has been reportedly attacked by unknown gunmen at his country home on Saturday, destroying household furniture and electronics.
 
The gunmen, about 20 of them who wore military camouflage for the attack, were said to have stormed the community in two speed boats at about 12.55 a.m. on Saturday.
 
It was gathered that the motive behind the attack is unknown as Mr. Turner, an associate of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, was recently quizzed by state security operatives who had invaded his Abuja residence a few weeks ago over allegations of contract scam.
 
Though no life was lost during the attack, a witness disclosed to a reporter that it lasted about three hours as property worth millions of naira were destroyed.
 
The witness who sought anonymity for security reasons, said the gunmen also brutalised the deputy chairman of the community’s council of chiefs before forcing their victim to accompany them to the residence of the monarch where they used dynamite to force the gate open.
 
Though the monarch and members of his family were not around when the attack took place, the hoodlums were said to have ransacked the entire house and in the process destroyed several furniture and electronics.
 
 
Asinim Butswat, the Bayelsa police spokesperson, when contacted, said he was yet to be briefed on the incident as he was away at Amassoma on official duty.
