Ijaw group –Ffederal government should be held responsible for Alamieyesiegha’s death


A United States-based group, the Ijaw Heritage and Cultural Club, IHCC, has asserted that the federal government should be held responsible for the death of a former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Dieprieye Alamaeyiesiegha over its alleged role in instigating the British authorities to issue an extradition notice.

The group, in a statement signed on its behalf by Prof. Julius Eteli stressed that the recent extradition notice purportedly issued by Britain on the former governor aggravated his health condition that resulted in his eventual death.

While expressing shock by news of the sudden death of Alamaeyesiegha and regretting the circumstances surrounding it, the group noted that Alamayiesiegha’s death was curious, considering that he regularly received medical treatment abroad.

IHCC revealed that the former Governor General of the Ijaw nation had actually returned from such medical trips in Dubai believed to have been facilitated by the Bayelsa State Government.

The statement reads in part, “From available reports, the Bayelsa State Government has always been of assistance to him, taking care of his medical bills and upkeep. The question is, how can a man who had just returned from Dubai having been attended to by experts die so suddenly?

“Clearly, it must have been the report of his extradition to the UK that must have triggered his health condition for the worse and the sudden death,” Eteli
stated.
