The Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) Worldwide has condemned the bloody conflict that has claimed four lives in Bilabiri in Ekeremor Local Government Area.

It was gathered that a proposed security contract triggered disagreements that led to the communal war.

But IYC in a statement signed by its President, Peter Timothy Igbifa, appealed to the warring parties to sheath their swords saying it was irresponsible for brothers to pick arms against themselves.

Igbifa said instead of bloodshed, Council will provide a roundtable to discuss the issues and resolve grey areas of their differences insisting that dialogue remained the best tool in dispute resolution.

The IYC boss called on the police and other security agencies to immediately move into the warring community and restore order to stop further breakdown of law and order.

He said the council was willing to work with stakeholders of Bilabiri and the state government as well as the security Agencies to ensure a non repeat while the people go about their normal day to day activities.
