Insecurity: Ijaw Youths Push For Security Outfit In Niger Delta by Kingscee: 7:02am On Jan 03
Mike Odiegwu, Port Harcourt

THE Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) Worldwide has vowed to pursue the establishment of a regional security outfit in the New Year to police the Niger Delta region, especially the Southsouth geopolitical zone.

In his New Year address in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Saturday, the IYC President, Peter Timothy Igbifa, said like the Amotekun in the West, it had become expedient for the Southsouth to float its security outfit.

Igbifa listed the security challenges in the zone, especially the Ijaw-speaking communities, saying the youths would mount pressure on the governors to undertake all executive and legislative processes required to evolve the outfit.

He said: “We are not alien to the reports of infiltrations of the herdsmen and other groups in our bushes and environment. The recurrent discovery of guns and live ammunitions on the highways is a clear indication that we must be prepared at all times.

“The news of our women being raped and killed in bushes, farmers intimidated and maimed on a regular basis and travellers robbed and killed is becoming unbearable.

“We, therefore, call on all structures of the council, zonal chapters and clans to set up mechanisms to check this unfortunate security threat in our region. I and my team are seriously considering the establishment of our own regional security outfit in line with the proposal made by the governors of our region. We shall push for this outfit and impress it upon the governors to invoke the required legislative process to give it a legal backing”.


Igbifa said the IYC under his leadership would push for the relocation of the headquarters of oil multinationals to the Niger Delta region in obedience to presidential directives; the passage of the Petroleum Industrial Bill (PIB) into law; practice of true federalism, stoppage of military invasion in Ijaw communities and issuance of indigenous licenses for modula refineries.

He said the IYC would hold all political holders from the region accountable and compel them to defend the common course of the Ijaw people.

“As 8th President of IYC, I urge all political office holders both at the national, regional, state and local levels to rise up and defend the cause of the Ijawland and challenge every law that has kept us as tenants even in our own homes.

“We want them to challenge the Land Use Act; the waterways laws; environmental acts, the ecological problems among others. We the IYC will collaborate to defend any of our political office holders willing to tread on the path of Ijaw”, he said.

Igbifa decried the disunity among different stakeholders in Ijawland lamenting that if the division remained unabated, the Ijaw people would not be able to realise their common aspirations.

This is not good for the country but with recent insecurity challenges, it has to happen. No thanks to the Fulani herdsmen who have made the police look like boys scouts.

Its buharis fault.he made other Nigerians look like fools by allowing the Fulani's to move about killing,kidnapping,renaming villages and all manner of ills to the Nigerian people yet this same Buharj will quickly send the military to quench any protest by armless civilans against his style of government.
Nigerians are rising to the occasion and are beginning to take necessary actions towards providing their own local security.

Nigerians are saying Enough is Enough

Point of correction my friend IYC or whatever nomenclature you call yourselves. You are all slaves and not tenants in the South south. Your master is the fulani army. Better wake up from sleep. Good morning according to Ikemba Nnewi. Forget the messenger and take the message. Your God given resources is being drained and exploited by the cartel since 1960 which is about 60 years today. You have been living in bondage and captivity and hardship, while your oil and gas resources is benefitting the fulani caliphate. Oil Exploration and Exploitation in Niger Delta, sharing of Oil and Gas money in Katsina. How long will this continue with no hope for your children.

Ijaws are selfish people that only think of themselves, they will use this opportunity to lord over their neighbors and enjoy all the benefits that comes only , when the benefits of amnesty came around , the ijaws claim to have been the one that agitated for it only , and that made them seized almost all the juicy benefits and positions that came . Niger delta can never be one if the ijaws continue with this their land grabbing mentality, right now they claim to be indigene from every state in the south south because some of their neighbors accommodated them in the past , they are doing all they can to rewrite history and their foot soldiers are always there to claim more territories for them , this is an opportunity for them to steal more lands and lord over the entire niger delta , we say no to it , make everybody guide their community
