The traditional rulers in Bayelsa State have lamented that the lifetime saving of furniture and priceless equipment inherited by their forefathers have all been rusted away by the ravaging floods in the state.

The Chairman of Bayelsa State Traditional Rulers Council and Ibenanaowei of Ekpetiama Kingdom in Yenagoa Local Government Area, King Bubaraye Dakolo, while speaking with newsmen on Tuesday, said about 90 per cent of the traditional rulers in the state were displaced from their palace during the peak of flooding in the state.
