Police Nab Two Over Attack On Judge In Bayelsa

THE Bayelsa State Police Command has arrested two suspects in connection with the attack on a judge during court proceedings in the state on Wednesday.


Justice Nayai Aganaba of the Bayelsa State High Court was stoned by dozens of hoodlums, who stormed his court to stop proceedings in a political case.


Justice Aganaba was hearing a case on the disputed ward, local government and state congresses of the All Progressives Congress (APC).


The claimant, Alex Blackson and his brother, Osom Blackson, were injured during the stampede in the courtroom.


The lawyers were chased out while the judge was later whisked to safety by his police orderly.
