It appears that robbers are on the prowl in Yenagoa as the 2015 governorship election is gathering momentum for both Governor Dickson and his arch rival, Chief Timipre Sylva to contest..
It is gathered that these robbers attack residents and shoppers at night and made away with their valuable property especially handsets, wrist watches and cash. Some who claimed to have challenged them is shot with a pool of blood while others sustained injuries.
Just two days ago, Creeknewsweekly.com was told that the publisher of Niger Delta News Link, Victor Christopher and his family were robbed.
Explaining his ordeal with the robbers, he said they came in about 2 am after they have successfully cut the protector and bang the door opened, and then started telling him to hand over his wrist watches, handsets, chains and anything that is handy.
According him he had no choice than to persuade them to pick them up in other to save his life and others in the family.
After that, they went further to gain entry into his next neighbor’s flat and did the same thing. Finally, they also gained entry into the landlord’s apartment and shot him because he claimed to be braver that them, leaving behind him with a pool of blood after they carted away some of his valuable property.
He is said to have been rushed to private clinic for treatment by neighbors after reporting the matter to the police to enable the doctors at the clinic to render medical attention to him.
There was also another incident at a Super Market along Samphino Road where gun trotting robbers forced all the shoppers to lay flat on the floor as they made away with their cell phones including cash.
These and other related incidents happened daily in Yenagoa now that the election draws close. A victim told this correspondent that the sleepy city has never experienced this type of new crime wave.
The police in the state appears to be ignorant of this development as telephone calls put to them were never picked up.
