Suspected DSS operatives arrest Bayelsa journalist, Aibiri in commando style

Four armed men suspected to be operatives of Directorate of State Service (DSS) on Saturday arrested popular Bayelsa journalist, Mr. Jones Abiri and took him to an undisclosed location. 

Abiri, the publisher of Weekly Source Newspaper, who was incarcerated for two years on charges of terrorism in the past, and later released last year, was whisked away at about 4:30 p.m that day.

According to eyewitnesses, Abiri was in company of some colleagues at his office at Azikoro junction of Yenagoa when the armed men arrived at the scene in a white Hilux Van and black Prado Jeep and forcibly dragged and pushed their victim into one of the vehicles and drove off.

Austin Bodo, a journalist who witnessed the incident, said “we were sitting outside his office when a black Prado jeep and white Hilux drove into the premises in commando style.

“As they packed, two men carrying the type of guns used by DSS operatives, jumped out of one of the cars and said Abiri was under arrest and immediately started dragging him and forced him into one of the cars and drove off.”

Another witness, Mr. Bankole Abdulazeez, said “we were discussing national issues when the cars drove in.

“Two armed men came out of the cars and without identifying themselves, they said you are under arrest and started dragging him.

“They threatened to shoot anybody that tries to stop them.

“I heard him shouting ‘what have I done again? what have I done again?’ Before they finally dragged him into one of the cars and drove off,” he said.

When contacted, a DSS Official, who preferred anonymity, said: “I only heard of it from a journalist friend; I don’t think it is our men from here.”
