Jonah Okah, a loyalist of Timipre Sylva, former governor of Bayelsa state, has been arrested by the police.

Okah disclosed this to Doifie Buokoribo, Sylva’s media aide, on Wednesday, saying he had been taken to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

“I have just been picked up by the police from the office of the commissioner of police from Bayelsa state command on the order suspected to be from the Bayelsa state government. I’m being taken to SCID led by one SP Ani,” read a text message he sent to Buokoribo.

Okah said his arrest might be in connection with a critical comment of Seriake Dickson, governor of Bayelsa, which he posted on Facebook recently.

Efforts to confirm the development form Asinim Butswat, spokesman of the Bayelsa police command, did not yield the desired result, as his telephone was out of reach.
