DSS arrests Bayelsa monarch over boundary dispute

The Department of State Security (DSS) on Tuesday arrested a traditional ruler of Agrisaba community in Nembe local government area of Bayelsa State, King Walter Agiri, over boundary dispute between Agrisaba and Oluasiri in the council.


The Bayelsa Renaissance Movement (BRM) on Tuesday commended DSS for taking the bold step to arrest the monarch as part of efforts to find lasting solution to the problem.

The king was arrested by DSS operatives  in Yenagoa and whisked away to the command’s headquarters for interrogation.

BRM in a statement signed by its Coordinator, Mr. Rondson Irokari, faulted the claims by some Agrisaba elders that the monarch was nabbed following a protest against the Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) in the community.

Irokari said an independent investigation by the group revealed that the DSS arrested the monarch following security breaches in the area.
