The younger sister to the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has continued to stay in the unpleasant confines of kidnappers forty-two days after she was abducted.

Concerned Bayelsa locals residing in Yenagoa, the state capital, have pleaded with the governor to secure her release.

The 26-year-old Nancy Dickson, said to be the last child of the Dicksons, was abducted on December 19, 2015. She was seized at her shop on Okaka Road, Yenagoa, at about 2.50pm.”

The governor’s sister spent the Yuletide season and the New Year with her abductors.

A source close to the governor confirmed Dickson was not disposed to paying any ransom for her sister.

The source further explained, “The governor does not believe in paying ransom to kidnappers. When his mother was kidnapped, the abductors demanded ransom, but the governor turned down their request. They became tired and set her free.”

A top security officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “The governor should negotiate her release and then security agencies will take it up from there.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Butswat Asinim, said, “We are working on promising leads that will ensure the rescue of Nancy.”
