‘Peter Ogiero committed suicide,’ no he died of stroke - Bayelsa Government

Contrary to reports that a civil servant, Mr. Peter Ogiero, committed suicide because of unpaid salaries, the Bayelsa State Government has denied it, saying that the man died of stroke, ITRealms gathered.

The government quoted a family source as revealing that "the deceased was suffering from partial paralysis, which was responsible for his death."

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Bayelsa State, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said there is no iota of truth in the story, ITRealms reports.

Iworiso-Markson said the report was a calculated attempt by the All Progressives Congress, (APC and its cronies to score cheap political points ahead of the forthcoming governorship election scheduled for December 5.

"Bayelsa is one of the few states in the country that remains committed to the welfare of its workers, stressing that, it is on record that, the present administration was not owing workers. Governor Henry Seriake Dickson has ordered the immediate payment of September salaries to the entire workforce, despite the dwindling allocation from the federation account, he said.
