The Bayelsa Government has called on the Police and other security agencies to apprehend the killers of a prominent cattle dealer, Jibril Abdulkarim, and three of his aides.
Abdulkarim and his aides were shot dead at his private abattoir, in Yenagoa, on December 2.
Abdulkarim was a member of the Bayelsa Committee for the Management and Control of Ranches, and Chairman, Cattle Breeders’ Association (CBA) in the state.
During a visit to commiserate with the families of the deceased, Governor Seriake Dickson condemned the reprehensible act. Dickson, who was represented by the Chief of Staff, Talford Ongolo, assured the families of the state government’s efforts to fish out the perpetrators.
He also added that the State Government would collaborate with the security agencies to ensure that those behind the heinous act were arrested and brought to justice.
The governor, who was accompanied by other top government officials and security chiefs in the state, described Abdulkarim as a peace loving, law abiding and easy-going businessman who was a friend to all, including the government.
