Opu-Nembe crisis: Sylva, Diri in fresh battle of words

The last is yet to be heard of the lingering leadership crisis rocking Opu-Nembe Community, in Nembe Local Council of Bayelsa State, as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timipre Sylva, and the Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, once again, engaged in fresh battle of words.


Sylva, yesterday, alerted security agencies and members of the public to a plot by Diri to stoke a fresh crisis in Opu-Nembe ahead of the November 11 governorship election.

Sylva, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Julius Bokoru, said Diri had been the brain behind the Opu-Nembe bloody crisis in the past two years.

Sylva had insisted that the governor had shown nothing but absolute disdain to the people of the area, adding that Diri was only interested in keeping Opu-Nembe in crisis because it is the stronghold of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
