|Any Further Attack On Itsekiri Community Will Turn Niger Delta To Somalia by kpogede77: 6:46pm On Jul 10, 2013|
FROM CONCERNED ITSEKIRI GROUP.
TO THE IJAW ETHNIC NATIONALITY.
cc: The President / commander in chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
The Governor, Delta State.
DO NOT TAKE THE ITSEKIRI ETHNIC NATIONALITY FOR GRANTED, IT COULD BE ONE CHANCE TAKEN TOO FAR.
We believe in the rule of law, though the world is unanimous on the fact that "justice" is blind. The Itsekiri nation constituted by people at home and in diaspora also appreciate that the Itsekiri people are not oblivious of the fact that that some of its self-annointed leaders, specifically those who have arrogated the communal power embedded in community oil leadership of Warri North LGA to themselves, are mindlessly corrupt, consequently causing their action and or inactions to continously endanger the lives of our innocent people.
Be this ugly, anti-democratic and socially repugnant trend as it may, it is CIG's belief that the Itsekiri nation is very capable of handling its defaulting indigenes and handing them to the appropriate authorities when they are finally apprehended. This is one pursuit we must accomplish now or at the expiration of their appointment in government. However, that does not mean that they no longer belong to us as a people, it is only as a punitive step to serve as deterent to economic or power drunk Itsekiris.
It is against the background of unprovoked attacked of our communities in Warri North LGA that CIG hereby state without fear of contradiction that:
1. Our organization is not worried about the expansionsit tendencies of our Ijaw neighbours, that is if they confine their mission within the boundaries of the Ijaw territories.
2. it must be understood that any attempt by the Ijaws to further provoke the Itsekiris, whether in Warri North, South West and Warri South will have multiple retaliatory-response from the Itsekiris, and as usual both tribe will display their capacity and propensity for violence that will also distabilize the Niger Delta and cause unimaginable mayhem within Delta State in particular and Nigeria as a nation. This is not a promise, but an action that Itsekiris are prepared for and are waiting to embark on. May God forgive those innocent citizens of Delta State who may regret its impact. 3. The President is an Ijaw man from Bayelsa state, and this issue, besides the fact that he is the C in C of the federal Republic of Nigerian, falls within his ethnic responsibility to curb before it is turned into full scale war.
4. We have intelligence reports of the Ijaws plan to coerce, blackmail, conscript and enlist the support and collaboration of other law abiding and uninterested Ijaw chiefdoms and kingdoms within and outside Delta state in pursuit of righting an imaginary belief for an "age long marginalization," before their "son and incumbent president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan leaves office or contest the 2015 presidential election." Though Itsekiris are familiar with such absurdities, We are contrained to remind every Ijaw man, woman or child that it would be counter productive to harbour such evil and malicious thoughts against the Itsekiri people. Perhaps they would like to ask Honourable James Manager the pact he had with the Itsekiri political class proir to the 2011 general elections. No one Niger Delta ethnic nation can succeed without the spport of the others.
We have spoken as usual, and shall continue to unveil every negative plan against the society, only this time shall CIG,in accordance with its objectives match every word with decisive action to clear the doubt of the "doubting thomases".
Be it known that the Ijaws are further compounding the political web around the potential success of their own son and incumbent president, they may have themselves to blame on the short or long run. Any attempted trial to attack Itsekiris will convince its perpetrators, but many people will not live to tell the tale!
Long Live His Royal Majesty, Atuwatse 11, Olu of Warri
Long Live law abiding Deltans and Delta State
Long Live law abiding Nigerians and Nigeria.

Note that the population of Itsekiri people is over 1.2 million which is more than the population of Taliban in Afghanistan

The Ijaws have truly gone too far this time, they feel they have monopoly of violence. Instead of negotiating to get anything they want - be it political power or economic power, they prefer threats, intimidation and physical attacks on defenseless people.
This latest attacks do not make sense at all. Was it the itsekiri villages that was attacked that was responsible for appointing the local government chairman in koko? Was any of the 6 innocent itsekiri killed an official of the local government? If the Ijaws are brave as they boast, why attack old people going about their business in the villages, they should go to koko and attack the local govenment officials or better still go to Asaba and attack the governor who is responsible for making anybody a local govenment chairman. The average itsekiri does not care who is local government chairman as he or she has gained nothing from all the previous itsekiri chairmen in the past.
I honestly pray the Ijaws turn a new leaf and learn to dialogue and negotiate with their opponents to achieve their aims as is done by civilized people.

And some idiots will say the north is the problem with Nigeria.
|Re: Any Further Attack On Itsekiri Community Will Turn Niger Delta To Somalia by solomon111(m): 11:41pm On Jul 10, 2013|
A-ZeD:The north being a major part of Nigeria's problem is an irrefutable truth.
Though It seems elements in the SS wants to create their own problem.

1.2 million mangroove trees you mean.
If you like, mess twith the Ijaw people, you will become refugee for the 2nd time. Itsekiri people should learn from the troubles they went through in the hands of the Ijaws in the 90's and make peace with their neighbours.

The only good thing we learnt from the crises is that a return of fire for fire brings absolute peace. That is what we did to stop the crises. Their leaders have said they are criminals and we are watching the situation. Any single gun shot from the Ijaw axis again will lead to a conflagration of unimaginable proportion . If you doubt this a trial will convince you . As I speak to you the youths are still mounting pressure on the army to leave the water ways for one week. Let us engage each other. You don't go to villages where old women reside to attack them and claim you are a warrior. Engage the youths in a battle field let us test our military capabilities
