Ijaw Youths At Rhythm 95.7FM Radio Programme In Bayelsa, Attack APC Members by metroparrot: 9:31pm On Jun 23, 2016

Yenogoa in Bayelsa state indicates that some members of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) sympathetic to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state were attacked by other members sympathetic to the Peoples Democratic party (PDP).

According to an eye witness, president of the Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC) Udeng Eradiri, who is a PDP member stormed Rhythm 95.7 FM radio station with over 50 thugs and attacked the spokesman and mobilisation Officer, of the group, Mike Edounkumor and Wisdom Ikuli respectively, who were both participating in a radio programme anchored by Lishman Onisodemunya.

Edounkumor and Ikuli are said to be loyal members of the APC in the group who have severally opposed the leadership of the president.

The witness said shortly after the thugs stormed the radio station with the backing of some policemen, they fired sporadically into the air before storming the studio to beat up Edounkumor and Ikuli on a live radio programme.

“The thugs severely manhandled the two men in the studio, before the police providing them cover picked them up in handcuffs and drove them to the police station.” the witness said.




An eye witness video shows the two APC members being moved into the premises of the police in Yenogoa while still exchanging words with their attackers.

As at press time, Edounkumor is said to be currently in coma and has been rushed to an undisclosed hospital in Yenogoa.

The IYC spokesman who was also attacked said the Commissioner of Police has been briefed of the incident.

Hmmmm.

Anything Ijaw youth is synonymous with violence.

There are always different factions.

Both PDP and APC factions are all killers.

Bayelsa state has always been in the news for the wrong reasons, this is purely political, the war btw PDP and APC seems to be more deadly than I taught, who knows if the APC member live on radio was making provocative statement against the PDP on Radio which could attract such a treatment from their opposition.. My taught tho

divide9ja:

When it Favours the west they try to divide the South-SOuth & South-East.
When it does'nt they accept that we are one people.
When the NDA warned Buhari that his visit will be his death, everybody said let the Army wipe out the South-South & South-East.
It shows that as the West is united with the North, that they know that the South-South is united with the South-East grin grin grin grin
Well what Fanyogoyogo said shows that in the South-East & South-South that it's "All for One, One for All" grin grin grin grin
Make the West & North begin Fear
PS
MOD no ban me oh, I beg you.

Yawn. Unity that thrives on Yoruba phobia won't last. I pity your like and apkabios of the SS.
Yorubas always stands alone. And they stand strong.

I was in the East throughout last year and I know that one of the greatest sin you can commit over there is being an APC member or openly pro-Buhari. You'll look like a murderer in their eyes. I don't blame them though, Buhari keeps spilling blood over there and yet expect them to embrace him. How is that possible?

The two people attacked have been causing problems within the IYC. Some politicians were using them to disorganise the IYC.

I contacted relevant authorities in the state and I was shocked to know that the two people attacked, were acting in disobedience to a high court ruling restraining them from conducting themselves as IYC executives.

According to the court ruling, (copies of which has been sent to me) Eradiri Udengs and Barr. Eric Omare remain the bonafide president and spokesman respectively.

No. Fulani herdsmen would have sacked the whole community there and set the place on fire. undecided

Mbok, what has Biafra got to do with this?
this is Ijaw matter, it isn't even pdp or apc matter.
politics parties in Nigeria are not based on ideologies, they are just vehicles through which politicians with selfish, tribal and religious interests achieve their crooked goals.
