Youths of Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State have occupied their Council Secretariat stating that the governor is the only authority they know.

The youths, who stormed the council secretariat after the governor’s statewide broadcast directing Heads of Local Government Administration to take over the leadership of the 23 LGAs in the state chased away all agents that are opposed to the directive issued by the governor.

The youths in their hundreds moved round the council premises stating that they would not allow anyone take away what belonged to the council.

One of the youths who preferred not to be named said they were at the council secretariat to ensure that the directive of the governor is obeyed.

He said: “All of them have disappeared, because we have come to take over. The governor is the power that we know. We have taken over Eleme. Total take over.

“The governor is the power we know, there is no other power. We have taken over Eleme. Eleme is taken. Their tenure has elapsed they should go home.”
