Why we invited Amassoma traditional rulers —Bayelsa commission of inquiry


By Emem Idio

YENAGOA—THE Commission of Inquiry set up by Bayelsa State Government to look into the Amassoma community crisis in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state, has said commission was not set up to arbitrate on any leadership tussle within the community but to unravelled the causes of the civil disturbances that led to the loss of lives.

Chairman of the commission, DIG Michael Zuokumour (retd), who made the clarification during the commission’s sitting in Yenagoa, yesterday, said the commission only invited the traditional rulers as stakeholders of the area because they had discovered that there was a link between the chieftaincy issues and the crisis that engulfed the community.
