One of the surviving women that fought against British taxation and failed educational policies in Eastern Nigeria during the Women Riot of 1958 has lamented against the endless atrocities in the Bayelsa State Capital, Yenagoa.
Mrs. Ominawe Mekedian, while expressing anger against the abduction of 3 years old twins babies, Kehinde, and Taiwo that were taking away by suspected ritualist at the popular Ekeki Car Park in the state capital a few months ago described the event as a crime against God and societal sanctity.

The 83 years old mother who also frowned at the insistent sectarian cult-related killings in Agudama Epie Community in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State stated that the calous activities have sent potential future leaders and scholars to early grave.

Ominawe, reflecting on series of arm robbery activities and gun battles by young boys that often send the law abiding citizens on rampage blamed the police, parents and community leadership failure as parts of the reasons why occult activities are on the increase in communities.

She warned women not to go to their farmlands alone, adding that some persons who pepetrate these atrocities are now in the bush to take advantage of the volnerablity of women.

Ominawe who served as pioneer Member of Agudama Epie Women Council called on girls to make education as a periority.
