A COMMUNIQUE ISSUED BY THE IJAW YOUTH COUNCIL, IYC, WESTERN ZONE—AT THE END OF AN EMERGENCY MEETING VIA ZOOM, DUE TO THE THREAT ISSUED By FULANI JIHADIST.
Following the threat by Fulani Jihadist to attack cities in Delta State, the Ijaw Youth Council, (IYC) Western Zone met, on the 14 day of June 2021 to review the State of the Nation and called on President Muhammadu to head to the call of restructuring Nigeria by devolving powers to State Governors to be in charge of security.
IYC, Western Zone, therefore, commends South-South Governors on their position with regard to open Grazing. We flagrantly condemn the threat by Fulani Jihadist to attack Asaba and other cities in Delta State.
In view of the foregoing, we herby strongly urge the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari to restructure Nigeria to avert the insecurity challenges bedeviling the country.
After a painstaking examination from the threat of the Fulani Jihadist, the leadership
of IYC, Western Zone, resolved as follows:
(1) That we are in full support of the recommendations made by the South-South Governor’s Forum in Asaba.
(2) We call on President Buhari to mandate the security agencies to fish out these miscreants who are currently masquerading under the aegis of Fulani jihadist.
(3) The Ijaw Youth Council demands that the South-South Governor’s Forum especially those from the Niger Delta States should as a matter of urgent national importance send a bill to the various State Houses of Assembly seeking to ban open grazing.
(4) The Niger Delta people are currently the glue holding the nation, however, we are the only people that are not agitating for a break out from this contraption called Nigeria notwithstanding the fact that we are the economic base of this country, and any attempt to undermine our people will lead to dire consequences.
Finally, we wish to state that we are peaceful people even though we have the capacity to defend ourselves and our territory, we will not take laws into our hands. So, we urge the security agencies to fish out this disgruntled group code named “Fulani Jihadist.”
