Suspected sea pirates struck on Friday in Bayelsa State, a day preceding the state House of Assembly elections, by abducting five leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

It was learnt that the hoodlums attacked a passenger boat conveying five aides of the Deputy Speaker of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Chief Sam Ateki, along the waterways of Brass in Brass Local Government Area of the state.

According to reports, other passenger boats plying the waterways at the time of the attack, including a boat conveying the State Chairman of the Nigerian Union Journalists, Mr. Tare Akono, narrowly escaped from the area.

The PDP leaders, who were said to be heading for Twon Brass to participate in today’s House of Assembly elections in the state, were reportedly whisked away to an unknown destination.
