Military quizzes activist in Bayelsa for report in social media





Human and environmental rights activist, Mr. Alagoa Morris, was quizzed for about two hours by the military following a report he posted on social media.

It was gathered that some military intelligence officers attached to the Joint Task Force (JTF), Operation Delta Safe (ODS) invited Morris to one of their Sector Commands in Otiotio, Yenagoa Bayelsa State.

It was learnt that Morris, a key member of the Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO) in the state, was accompanied to the command by the state Chairman of CLO, Chief Nengi James and other officials of the organisation.

Confirming the development, Morris said the military officers interrogated him on a follow-up to a published human rights-related investigations.

He said it was interesting to know that the military was investigating his concerns over the whereabouts of three persons arrested by men in uniform at Ibelebiri over a year ago.

“We later discovered that they wanted to get details about our report on the arrest of three natives of Ibelebiri, who were taken away over a year ago in the dead of the night by men in military uniform.

“No relations or fellow community person knows where the three persons are being held or detained. We promised to give them more details on the matter. We were delighted to know that after all our concerns on human rights are being investigated,” he said.
