Authorities of the Bayelsa State Police Command has dragged twelve women from Agobiri community in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state to court over their alleged involvement in an unlawful assembly and use of occultic means to block ongoing construction of the Yenagoa/Oporoma road by the State Government.

The Women dragged to Court include Madam Nerisa John (43), Christiana Famous (36), Dolphina Ochai (34), Flora Clinton (55), Ayibanua Lucky (33) and Motoko Oyibadoemi (54). Others include Amilo Brandy (30), Tuebi Romeo (25), Ayibaegben Godbless (40), Becky Williams (37), Ayababy Kwoli (50) and Falaba David (30).

In the two-count charges against them before the Magistrate Court, Oporoma division, the police accused the protesting women of allegedly conspiring among themselves to commit a felony with unlawful assembly and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 444(d) of the criminal code law, Cap c14 laws of Bayelsa State, 2006.

The charge reads “That you(all the accused) and others at large on the same date and place in the aforesaid Magisterial district with intent to carry out a common purpose, did assemble in such a manner by blocking the ongoing Oporoma-Yenagoa road construction with sticks, plantain, juju, palm fonts, causing persons in the neighbourhood to fear and tumultuously disturb the peace of the people using access road without reasonable occasion and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 54 and punishable under section 55 of the criminal code law, Cap C14 Laws of Bayelsa State.”

It was gathered that the women, who are indigenes of the Agobiri community in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the State were reportedly arrested during their protest against the alleged exclusion from the communities to benefit from the Oporoma/Yenagoa road construction project.

They had allegedly threatened to stop the road project if the Governor Douye Diri administration does not include their community as a beneficiary of the road project
