Yesterday 25/10/2020 the Sea Pirates making traveling to and from Bille-Port Harcourt highly miserable struck a passengers’ boat.
As a result, one person is found missing, their valuables and even the speedboat were taken away.
Sadly, the victim, Mr. Taminoemi Kemuel, is my first cousin. He was returning to Port Harcourt from Bille Town to when he met his sudden and untimely death.
He is a father of 6 whose recent children include a set of twins which births took place roughly a month ago.
May I use the opportunity to strongly call on the State Government to immediately put a stop to the excesses of the Sea Pirates in the Bille – Port Harcourt water route.
The Pirates’ activities are now very regular due to the absence of security checks on our water way. Enough is enough for Bille people lives matter!
