LAGOS—The Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, Lagos chapter, has denied claims that the Ijaws were responsible for the killings at the Ogun/Lagos boarder.
A statement by the group’s chairman, Mr. Boma Johnbull, said that due to the harmonious relationship with their neighbours, they would not do anything to jeopardize the goodwill that had existed amongst them.
Johnbull frowned at the way and manner the Ijaws were dragged into the crime without the law enforcement agencies carrying out diligent and proper investigation to ascertain those involved in the erroneous act.
He said: “We as a matter of urgency call on the appropriate authorities concerned to swing into action and fish out the killers of these innocent citizens and bring them to book. It does not matter where they come from.”
