The Ijaw Youths Council IYC Worldwide, has condemned in it’s entirety the assassination attempt of its National Treasurer, Comrade Timilaemi Ebifoubo.
The attack which was carried out on the 6th of March, at his community, Amabulou in Ekeremor Local Government Area by some criminal elements, also led to the untimely demise of his Uncle, Mr. Omolojo Etolo.
A Press Statement issued by its National Spokesperson, Comr. Ebilade Ekerefe, the Council frowned at the unfortunate incident and therefore call on the Nigerian Police and other relevant security agencies to swing into action by arresting and prosecuting the culprits of this heinous crime.
Comrade Ekerefe in the statement noted that available information suggests that the criminal gang are now holding the entire community hostage.
This according to him has degenerated to looting and destruction of properties and the people of Amabulou now living in perpetual fear.
Comr. Ebilade Ekerefe noted that there is now a complete breakdown of law and order in the community which should not be tolerated considering the rich cultural and traditional importance of the community which predates modern history in Ijaw land.
The Council observed that if steps are not taking urgently to forestall normalcy in the Community, by relevant authorities, it could spiral and get out of control.
Council also call on the Bayelsa state government to intervene and bring normalcy back to the once peaceful community.
The arrowheads whom have been accused of carrying out this heinous crime and have forcefully taken over Amabulou Community according to the statement are,Konmane Akpos, (popularly General Gala), Ebiama Clinton ,Samson Okumagbe and others.
