The Ijaw youth cuncil(IYC) has condemned the killing of Yoruba leader’s daughter Pa Fasoranti along the Benin Ore road by suspected fulani herdsmen.

National President, Barr.Eric Omare disclosed in Saturday, said ‘‘The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide condemn in the strongest terms the gruesome murder of the daughter of Yoruba leader,.


‘‘This is one death too many and we say enough is enough. It is on record that for so many months, suspected fulani kidnappers have virtually taken over the Benin to Lagos road and so many persons have victims of their activities. However, sadly the security agencies kept mute and did nothing. It is unfortunate that the very poor security situation along the Benin to Lagos road especially arising from the activities of Fulani herdsmen is coming to the national limelight as a result of the death of Pa. Fasoranti’s daughter. The security agencies ought to have taken drastic steps to address the situation long before now and but unfortunately did nothing about it.


‘‘Since, the security agencies have failed in their primary responsibility to protect lives and properties, we call on communities and especially youths to take their destiny into their hands and protect their communities and people. The unwarranted killings in different parts of Nigeria by fulani herdsmen would not stop until the Nigerian people take their destiny into their hands and defend themselves. It is time for the youths to rise up and defend their communities now. Enough is enough’’ he said.
