Residents of Yenagoa woke up on Tuesday morning to witness  increased security around Government House and strategic areas of the capital in anticipation of Supreme Court judgement on Bayelsa governorship poll.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria in Yenagoa reports that all the roads leading to Onopa, the seat of government were blocked by armed security men.

Motorists and other commuters were forced to seek alternative routes to their destinations.

The Supreme Court will deliver judgment on Monday on the legal tussle between Gov. Seriake Dickson of the PDP, who was declared winner of the poll and Chief Timipre Sylva, the APC candidate who challenged the victory.

Sylva had approached the election petitions tribunal which upheld Dickson’s election.

Not satisfied by the verdict of the tribunal, the APC candidate took his case to the Appeal Court which also affirmed the decision of the tribunal.

However, inspite of the heavy presence of security men deployed in strategic locations, the capital remains calm.

DSP Asinim Butswat told NAN in a telephone interview that the deployment was to ensure the prevailing peace in the capital is maintained.
