Ijaw leaders lament presence of armed herders in communities

14:52 Feb 10 2023 Bayelsa State

Description
Ijaw leaders, under the auspices of the Ijaw National Congress (INC) and the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), have cautioned against the invasion of Ijaw communities by armed persons, suspected to be herders.

They said there has been an invasion of communities and farmlands of Ijaw and indeed Niger Delta people by “these intruders who wield dangerous and lethal weapons”.

They, therefore, called on the states in the Niger Delta region to properly enforce their anti-open grazing laws and protect lives and property.

They also demanded that residents be guaranteed access to their farms and make a living without fear and apprehension.

These remarks are contained in a communique issued on Wednesday by the National President of the INC, Benjamin Okaba.

The communique was signed after a one-day joint leadership meeting of the INC and the IYC held at the Ijaw House, Yenagoa, Bayelsa.
