King Alfred Diete-Spiff of Twon Brass, Brass Local Government Area, Bayelsa State, has advocated the resolution of a political crisis that ensued between rival youths groups.

The resident who agreed to the peace pact have now declared every last Sunday of November as annual Thanksgiving Day.

The wife of the monarch, HRM Josephine Diete-Spiff, known for her activism on issues bordering on the well being and development of the family and the girl-child, said the vision to covenant and rededicate the kingdom back to God was to restore lasting peace to the kingdom.

It was indeed an amazing ceremony and God did accept our prayers as calm has since returned to our kingdom. To God be all the glory and praise as we give Him thanks for His great mercies to us as a people, a race and a kingdom.

“A few days after the event, the rival party had meeting with the opposition party members and spoke about building peace in the kingdom,” she said.

NDV recalls that a group formed by some concerned Twon-Brass youths called the Twon-Brass Peace and Development Initiative, last week, organised a peace parley between the two opposing groups, whose activities had occasioned loss of lives, destruction of houses and property in the past.

The meeting, it was also learned, had in attendance 20 persons (10 each) from the rival youth groups, members of the Twon Brass community, Ministers’ Forum, a former chairman of Brass Local Government Area, top security officials, chiefs, elders, women and youths of the community.

According to the Coordinator, Twon Brass Ministers’ Forum, Pastor Ken Anjola, the peace and development initiative members presented white colored T-Shirts and a copy of the Bible to them, while the Twon Brass Ministers’ Forum led them to the exchange of vows to shun violence and pray for each other.

He said: “At the end, everyone went out for a peace walk for more than three hours showing the town that peace has come to stay in Twon Brass Kingdom.”
