Yenagoa – The Joint Military Task Force (JTF) in Bayelsa has confirmed that two explosions rocked parts of Yenagoa at about midnight on Friday.

The JTF spokesman, Lt.-Col. Timothy Antigha, said on Saturday that there were dynamite explosions in certain parts of the capital city, but there were no casualties.





Section of Tombia bridge linking university town of Amassoma damaged in the Friday night explosion
The task force, he said, was collaborating with other security agencies in the ongoing investigation into the matter.

Antigha advised the residents of Yenagoa to remain calm and pursue their legitimate businesses lawfully, “as the JTF is working in tandem with other security agencies to forestall a recurrence”.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Hilary Opara, also confirmed the blasts, saying that some miscreants might be trying to create the impression that there was insecurity in Bayelsa because Vice-President Namadi Sambo was expected in Bayelsa on Monday.

One of the scenes of the explosions is a colonial bridge constructed by the Shell Petroleum Development Company at the Tombia roundabout area.

The dynamite planted on the bridge exploded, creating a crater on one side of it.

Residents said that the aim of the masterminds of the blast had been defeated if it was intended to cut off the bridge.

This morning, anti-riot policemen and soldiers were seen taking charge.

Also at the scene of the other blast opposite the Government House gate, a Toyota Corolla car with registration number AH 674 KMK, laden with explosives suspected to be dynamites, exploded and got burnt but did not record any fatalities.

Reacting to the explosions, the Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Doifie Ola, said “Gov. Timipre Sylva has just been informed of two explosions that rocked parts of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, late Friday night.

“Details of the incident are still sketchy, but the Government of Bayelsa State condemns in the strongest possible terms any attempt to return the state to the dark days of insecurity.

“The administration places high premium on peace and security, and has invested so much to attain the peace and quiet that currently pervade the state.

“If there is anything that both friends and foes of the current administration agree on, it is the clear fact that Bayelsa State has since the inception of the Sylva-led government emerged from the darkness of insecurity into the marvelous light of peace and stability.

“It will be most callous of anyone to try to shatter this peace.”

The spokesman quoted the governor as advising the peaceful people of Yenagoa “to remain calm, but strong and vigilant as we work together to overcome these challenges”. (NAN)

BOKO HARAM- THE FEAR THEY CREATED
Without boko haram what will the news sell? Without Niger Delta militant what ... excuse will the government have for failure without
Egbesu boys what will the House discuss? Without thugs, what is politics in Nigeria? Many news looks for boko haram to sell their
stories Political officers raise thugs to save their heads Religious leaders accuse others to win supp...ort of congregations Tribal-
clash operators support Militants in the name of freedom fighters who is fooling who? Boko harams are human beings They have house they live They have family they feed They have identity to recognize They have abode they meet They have website they operate They have money they spent They have ammunition they use At least one man provide them with house At least One man remains their families
At least One man remains their friends At least One man saw them during their meeting At least one man fund their spending
At least one man host their website At least one man supply their ammunition Yet NONE OF US KNOW Boko Haram!
Ask government "The perpetrator will not go unpunished" Ask Pastors "The Muslims is at it again" Ask Imam "These are not Muslims,
they must be punished" Yet! All of us blame one thing or the other! If truly Boko Haram exists and they hate education How many primary school have they burnt? How many Secondary school have they bombed? How many Universities have they blast? How many teachers have they killed? That is a simple way to achieve their aims Why bombing of police headquarters instead of primary schools? Why bombing of UN building instead of secondary schools? Why bombing of Churches and Arabic school instead of Universities? Hmmm!!! something is fishy here! Oh GOD, Who is fooling who? While the Muslims and Christians are at war with one another. The politicians are at peace planning next election

Let them bomb Jona family maybe that will make him wake up from his weakness and plan how to deal with those bad people
B'coz all his focus now is on Nigerian petrol. I know when they attack his family he must realize his job as a president.
The job of a president is not all about stealing and dumping money in foreign countries. (Bad luck Jonathan wake up!!!!!)

To some, it means Boko Haram has migrated from Maiduguri to Yanagawa, while it means South-south has their own terrorism there to some. It may have many other meanings though.
