Ijaws Not Behind Attacks On Lagos, Ogun – IYC by TonyeBarcanista(m): 1:11pm On Jul 29, 2016


The Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide has denied reports that the Ijaws were behind the violent attacks on communities in Lagos and Ogun States by militants.

The group said those ascribing such criminalities to Ijaws were doing so to cause ethnic war between Ijaw and their Yoruba neighbours.

The President, IYC, Mr Udengs Eradiri, at a press conference in Yeagoa on Thursday asked the security agencies to flush out the perpetrators of Lagos violence and stop making public statements that could create ethnic tension.

Eradiri said, “There are some groups in Lagos engaged in criminal activities and those activities are now threatening the brotherly relationship our people have enjoyed in Lagos.

“First, Nigeria should stop ascribing anything that happens in the Niger Delta to Ijaw people. For the avoidance of doubt, Niger Delta Avengers are not Ijaw people. I am tired of answering questions about Niger Delta Avengers.

“I am the President of the Ijaw Youth Council. I am not the President of NDA. NDA people are not Ijaw people. We don’t know who Niger Delta Avengers are. If the security agencies know Avengers, they should arrest them. They should do their jobs.

“They should stop transferring their jobs to community leaders or youth organisations or leaders of ethnic nationalities. Their duty is to maintain law and order, to gather intelligence and do whatever they deem fit to ensure that there is peace in the country.

“Please, stop ascribing negative things to Ijaw people. We are the fourth largest ethnic nationalities in Nigeria and I agree that we are the people who refuse to eat sand and call it food. But that does not mean that every little thing that happens in the region will be ascribed to Ijaw people.”

Eradiri said attacks on Lagos communities had assumed a worrisome dimension.

He noted that all the criminal activities in communities hosting the Arepo Atlas Cove pipelines in Lagos and Ogun States were being perpetrated by thieves who were out to enrich themselves.

The IYC boss said there were widespread economic crimes along pipelines in the country, insisting that the Lagos scenario involved people from all the ethnic groups.

“So, Nigerians should stop ascribing it to Ijaw people. Ijaw people are peace-loving people. For over hundreds of years, our people have cohabited with other ethnic nationalities. We have never been known to be hostile people.

I have always kept mute waiting for the response of IYC over the baseless allegations and accusations by some people and group ascribing the criminality of some idiots in Ogun and Lagos states as that perpetrated by "Ijaws".

For the record, it is unfair to even assume that Ijaws will be interested in crises on Yoruba soil. We are a peaceloving and law-abiding group.

It is incumbent on the Police and other agencies to fish out perpetrators of those heinous crimes irrespective of their ethnic affiliations, and deal decisively with them.

As for NDA, as long as Ijaw nation is concerned, they are on their own.

Are they not militants and Ijaws? When you groom a monster it will come outside one day and disgrace you. You think Yoruba's will say they are Ijaw without confirming that they are? We don't make emotional outbursts.

I am still yet to hear from the media parroting it on why they are being tagged ijaw militants. Has any group claimed responsibility? Have any of them been caught and made to confess?

Please how did this tag originate?

Which ammunition?? Are Ijaw people manufacturers of ammunition or sole distributors? Did the indigene carry out DNA test? What concerns militants with Ogun state or Lagos state?

Simply put, those guys terrorising your people are CRIMINALS. They are NOT Ijaw people and do NOT represent Ijaw nation

If it looks like, barks like and bites like a dog, then it is a DOG... They are pipeline vandals of IJAW origin!!!

IYC may be a peace loving group and aren't supportive of such wanton carnage, but the residents of these places aren't diaper wearing kids who can't identify the people that have been harassing them..

Anyway, anyhow, by any means necessary, these pipeline vandals will be deleted, their tribe is secondary... cool

This deliberate attempt by a group with strong backing of the media to tarnish the good image of Ijaw nation and denigrate her people will be stopped. We have cohabited with the Yorubas, we have Ijaw Kingdoms in part of Ondo, though like neighbours we have had some misunderstandings in the past, we can NEVER descend so low to turn into terrorists. NEVER

They are Ijaw people. Using the creeks to carry out their activities. It's not today it started. You can't just write an article and it will disclaim what is true and evident. Do you need DNA test in Nigeria to ask people where they are from. It is the fruit of militant activities. Militants terrorizing another man's land to fund their militant activities. We are not stupid we see through you people. We are not a small group like Itshekiri you can mess with. We left it to the military so you people wouldn't cry genocide. But we know who those people are and they are Ijaws.

While it lasted it was a pride of the IYC that their ethnic group has successfuly exported its militancy to terrorize Yorubaland, the ethnic instrumental to loss of their clueless son from power. When event turned and we came down with the whip IYC has the mind to distance itself from an object of the erstwhile pride.

So they need to tell us who these militants are.

IYC, are these militants Ibos?

Are Ijaws the only creek dwellers? What concerns an Ijawman with creeks in Lagos state? Are Ijaws the exclusive group the creeks was meant for? Isn't this lame?
Militants terrorizing another man's land to fund their militant activities. We are not stupid we see through you people. We are not a small group like Itshekiri you can mess with.
Militants(idiots) don't need to commit crimes in Lagos or Ogun to sponsor their crimes. they have been committing crimes of oil bunkering that is enough in their backyard to do that. Why should they go to unfamiliar terrrain like Lagos and Ogun state? What for? Why not Ondo state or even Akwa ibom state?
We left it to the military so you people wouldn't cry genocide. But we know who those people are and they are Ijaws.
Thi is a testament of your prejudice against Ijaw people and their system. But be rest assured that we are not interested to go into collision with any group... and we have never sought that.

The accusation of the criminals being Ijaws is baseless and illogical

When militants(criminals) strike, they come out to take responsibility. I don't care whether the perpetrators are militants or not, but i know that they are criminals and TERRORISTS.

However, they are not Ijaw people. They are criminals, and we(Ijaws) are giving the army the go-ahead and deal decisively with perpetrators irrespective of ethnic standing

You are a political Ijaw militant in all ramifications.

Who fights cyber war on behalf of Ijaw nation than Barcanista? You even expand the borders of Ijaw nation without releasing a single bullet.

Militancy is in you. Same passion and level of commitment.
