Burning of Houses at Southern Ijaw, Bayelsa State

18:35 Sep 29 2016 Bayelsa, Nigeria

On my radar: Report says a suspected phone thief from Ikebiri died in Korokorosei 27/09/2016 while he was in the Vigilante Group of Nigeria Korokorosei chapter custody in Southern Ijaw.

It was alleged the Vigilante members killed him in the process of interrogating him as a result some of the houses of the Vigilante members numbering about 15 were allegedly burnt and the Vigilante members in turn allegedly retaliated by burning some community people houses. This ugly incident is causing serious tension in the community as the community is divided.

Some are questioning the authority the Vigilante members have to arrest and question a suspect and up to the point of allegedly killing the suspect.
