By Chancel Sunday

WARRI — Perturbed by the resurgence of youth militancy in the oil-rich Niger Delta, the apex socio-cultural organization of the Ijaw ethnic nationality, the Ijaw National Congress, INC, has begun consultations with Ijaw leaders, youth groups and various associations across 78 Ijaw clans within and outside the Niger Delta with a view to ascertaining and identifying the immediate grievances in order to proffer all-inclusive solutions to the present wave of youth insurgency in the region.


The national delegation of the Ijaw apex body on the task, which comprised members from various Ijaw clans made this known to newsmen in Warri, Delta State, shortly after a consultative visit to the Ijaw community in Abraka and environs in Delta State, where they also mourned with and consoled the INC leader at the university town, Mr. Martins Ezonfade, over the demise of his father, Pa Dr Michael Ezonfade.

The national delegation led by the secretary-general of INC, Dr Bello Orubebe, INC Western Zone secretary, Mr Jeff Teiyeibo, assistant secretary INC Lagos, Mr Ebi Benson and others, noted that the body deemed it necessary to embark on the move to allow for peaceful coexistence among various ethnic groups in the Nigerian nation.
