Call on Gov Wike and Nigerian Army to intervene.
Sea pirates have taken over the Bille Kingdom in Degema L.G.A Of Rivers State.
Following the increased cases of Sea piracy in Bille Kingdom and Bonny Kingdom, groups and individuals are now calling for the immediate intervention of the State Government and other relevant agencies.
The group, who had come out to protest on Tuesday lamented at the unresponsive nature of the 29th Battalion of the Nigerian Army in the area.
In their words, “we have lost our youth to the series of gruesome attacks by sea pirates and the government have remained silence.”
The Bonny and Bille Kingdom located in the Oil-rich island of Rivers State, and the waterways is the only route to transport, both goods and humans to the various communities. In reecent times, there have been reports from different sectors that travelling the waterways is becoming more dangerous than ever.
The protest leader, Prince Beleari Dokubo asked that “with the monsters on our sea ways, how then can we survive.”
The people demanded that the Rivers State governor, Nyeson Wike and other citizens, such as chiefs and state house representative members make available plans and help the communities combat sea piracy and other forms of criminality in the area.
Earlier, Dez Mayorz Media reported that Gov Nyesom Wike and the Nigerian Army have been clapping down on the Indigenous People of Biafra who are seeking for the restoration of Biafra. The State governor also proscribed IPOB a terrorist group and placed #50m bounty on Stanley Mgbere who he claimed is the leader of IPOB in Rivers State. But the Eleme indigene, Stanley Mgbere said that the Governor misfired, that he is not a member of IPOB. Nigerian Army should withdraw some people they placed in Eleme to Degema to safeguard the people, because this is a matter of urgency.
Meanwhile, The people of Ahoada West LGA have also cried out for help, say flooding have taken over their land with no help nor support coming from the all the tiers of government.
