Angry protesters suspected to be members of All Progressives Congress (APC) have attacked the residence of PDP candidate during the November 16, 2019 governorship election and now Governor, Senator Douye Diri over the Supreme Court Judgment which ousted the candidate of APC, Chief David Lyon on Friday.
The protesters, who had earlier on Friday barricaded the streets of Yenagoa in protest of the judgement, later went violent destroying property of some PDP chieftains.
They destroyed the windscreen of cars parked at the premises of the Governor, doors and windows at the residence. People who were around at the premises said they had to scamper for safety, when the hoodlums came visiting.
They also attacked the public library belonging to the member representing Yenagoa and Kolokuma/Opokuma federal constituency in the National Assembly, Prof Steve Azaiki, PDP Secretariat in Yenagoa and Radio Bayelsa station.
Senator Douye Diri, alongside his Deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, were sworn in as the governor of Bayelsa State some hours ago.
The duo benefitted from the Supreme Court sacking of the APC’s David Lyon on Thursday.
The five-man panel of the Supreme Court led by Justice Mary Peter-Odili ordered INEC to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Lyon and his running mate.
The swearing in ceremony which took place inside the government house, comes after the Independent National Electoral Commission presented Certificates of return to both the governor and deputy governor in Abuja.
