The Ijaw Heritage and cultural club based in the United States of America (USA), on Sunday insisted that the Federal Government (FG) should be held responsible for the sudden death of former Bayelsa State governor, Chief Dieprieye Alamayiesiegha.
The group maintained that the recent extradition notice purportedly issued by Britain on the former governor aggravated his health condition that resulted in his eventual death.
It stated in a statement signed by Prof. Julius Eteli that it was shocking shocked beyond words by the news of the sudden death of Alamasieyiegha, expressing regrets over the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The statement said, According to him, “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.”
