Killing Of Ijaws In Patani By Herdsmen, Evil, Unacceptable – Ijaw Comrade Community


By Jasmine Yerin

Umbrella body covering all Human Rights Activists of the Ijaws in Delta State operating under the auspices of Delta Ijaw Comrade Community (DICC) on Wednesday described the killing of two Ijaw Indigenes in Toru-Angiama community, Patani Local Government Area of Delta state on Monday by suspected Fulani Herdsmen as evil and unacceptable.

The highly revered group made the statement yesterday in Warri via a statement personally signed by the President General of the Delta Ijaw Comrade Community (DICC), Amb. Binebai Yerin Princewill, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.

However, DICC while condemning the act had called on security agencies to swing into action by fishing out the killers, stressing that the Delta Ijaw Comrade Community is keenly watching and following up activities.

Nevertheless, Amb. Binebai Yerin Princewill noted that if the Government and its security agencies cannot curtail the excesses of Fulani Herdsmen in Nigeria and the Ijaw areas in Delta State, he asserted that nobody should blame anybody when the people rise to defend themselves as no one has the monopoly of taking another person’s life.

In his words “Nigeria is gradually becoming a banana Republic where human lives are regarded as less important than even cows and other animals.

“At this point, our people needs to be alert. ”

Meanwhile, DICC had mourned with the families of the victims, describing the event as sad and a monumental loss to the immediate family, Toru-Angiama community, Patani Local Government and to the entire Ijaws in Delta State.
