Some gunmen on Tuesday invaded the home of former lawmaker representing Bayelsa East Senatorial district at the National Assembly, Nimi Barigha-Amange, at the Ekeki Estate area of Yenagoa, the state capital.
The incident happened around 2:00pm on Tuesday with two armed men with AK 47 rifles jumping into the compound.
Barigha-Amange, who confirmed the development while speaking with Sahara Reporters, said the hoodlums invaded his home to carry out an evil plan.
He said, “They jumped into my compound and discovered I was not in the vehicle that entered.
“They decided to ransack everywhere and jumped back from where they came from.
“This is not the first time such would be happening. Gunmen have invaded my home in the past.”
Speaking further, the former lawmaker disclosed that he had reported the case to the police for thorough investigation.
