People of Brass were challenging the Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) over a delayed blackout, refusal to pay native workers for hire and resistance with its corporate social obligation in its host networks.
King Alfred Diette-Spiff who is the head of the Bayelsa State Traditional Rulers Council was the principal military legislative head of the old Rivers State.
Reacting to the occurrence, the Brass section of the Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) denounced the assault on Diete-Spiff, saying it would not excuse any lack of respect for the ruler from indigenes or outsiders.
“From our findings, the protest, triggered into chaos after some persons hijacked it and started fomenting trouble in the process, which eventually led to the attack on Diete-Spiff.
“We further learnt that while trying to protect the monarch, a soldier shot one of the protesters in the leg and the situation generated tension in the community. The shooting took place when some persons hijacked the protest and destroyed part of the palace.”
