Radio Bayelsa back on air after fire incident

The General Manager, Dr John Idumange, made this known in an interview in Yenagoa on Monday.

Idumange said that the fire was put out through a concerted effort of sympathisers and firemen.

He attributed the fire incident to sabotage by some staff but the labour unions said the allegation was prejudice to ongoing investigations.

Reacting to the development, Mr Daniel Iworiso-Markson, Bayelsa Commissioner for Information, said the feat was achieved through the relentless efforts of staff of the station.

He noted that there were plans to rebuild the studios destroyed by the fire incident, while a temporary studio had been put in place to ensure that the station begins normal transmission of programmes.

He said that full commercial broadcast of the station’s programmes would soon resume from the temporary studio.
