Peace has finally been restored to Peremabiri Community in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa, following the intervention of the government after a period of violence in the past week.

Some yet to be identified gunmen had attacked the community on Sunday for the second time in about a week, shooting sporadically and burning down residential buildings.

It is gathered that rival armed gangs were striving for control of the area, hence the violence which prompted the Police Command in the state to foster peace among critical stakeholders.

Diri said he had directed the suspension of recognition of any chief or leader in the community, pending the conclusion of investigations into the crisis.
