The Bayelsa State Government has expressed shock over the sudden demise of the son of the first civilian governor of the state, Mr. Oyamuyifa Alamieyeseigha in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
Oyamuyifa, 32, was found dead at the weekend.
Describing his death as a devastating blow, the government in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said the deceased would not only be missed by his immediate family, but the entire state as a whole.
Calling on the security operatives in Dubai to unravel the mystery surrounding the death, especially as there are conflicting reports over the manner in which he died, the statement stated that, this would afford the nation an opportunity to justify the confidence reposed in the security agents.
Death, according to the statement, is inevitable, adding however, that for a young man to leave at such a young age, when his services to the socio-economic growth of his State and Country was most needed is sad.
The statement prayed God to grant the father, who has contributed immensely to the growth of his fatherland and members of the Alamieyeseigha family the strength and fortitude to bear the loss.
