The Bayelsa State government and the authorities of the state police command have assured the families of the former governor, Chief Timipre Sylva and the senator representing Bayelsa central senatorial district, Sen Emmanuel Paul, on the early rescue of Pa Benson Adigio-Eseni and Mrs Florentina Paulker.

The 86-year-old uncle of the former governor, Chief Timipre Sylva was abducted from his home in Okpoama community in Brass local government area of the state while the senators 90-year-old mother was kidnapped from her home at Opollo area of the state capital.
The Bayelsa State government in a statement signed by the chief press secretary to the governor, Mr Daniel Markson-Iworiso, commended the security agencies for their swift response and subsequent apprehension of four suspects.
According to the statement, The Bayelsa State government has therefore, assured the security agencies of the needed support in their efforts towards a speedy and successful conclusion of the action to this incident. One of the prime suspects arrested within minutes of the distress call and three others arrested less than six hours later, have all made very useful statements to the police and efforts are on to ensure the prompt and successful release of the victims.
We wish to re-assure Bayelsans of the continued efficacy of the investments in security assets as well as the commitment of the security agencies to interdict crime, and where that is not possible, promptly investigate, apprehend and prosecute persons that are involved.
We are also appealing to all peace-loving Bayelsans to remain confident in the states security systems and continue to cooperate as well as collaborate with security agencies in the fight against crime and criminality.
The state government however restated its commitment to ensuring that no stone is left unturned in the pursuit of criminals in the state through its continued support to the security agencies in bringing perpetrators of the crime to book. Criminal elements are by this statement warned to stay away from Bayelsa State because they will be apprehended for any criminal act, the statement read.
Meanwhile, the Bayelsa State government has dissolved the State Youth Development Committee following the formal setting up and inauguration of the youth security committee known as Bayelsa Volunteers.
