We Demand Justice Over Toyo’s Death – IYC Tell Ondo Govt


Briga News Nigeria

The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Western condemns in strong term the heinous act of annihilating one of our own, Mr. O. Toyo by their Irele(Ikale) neighbours over a farmland ownership tussle.

Mr. O. Toyo was ambushed and killed while working on his farm in an unprintable manner. Until his murder, Mr. O. Toyo was a peace loving man from Igbobini Town in Apoi Clan of the Western Zone of Council.

The callous act of taking the life of an Ijaw Man is unacceptable to us as Council and ethnic nationality, the zone is pained, to avoid taking laws into our hands which would amount to break down of law and order, we therefore call on Ondo State government and all relevant security formations to fish out the assailants for justice to be served so as to prevent any reprisal attacks.

An injury to an Ijaw man anywhere is injury to Ijaw man everywhere,” it added.

We also, use this medium to call for calm and peace in Okomu over the reported breakdown of law and order in the community caused by suspected hoodlums.

Furthermore, we call on security authorities to investigate and unravel the true state of things towards and seek ways to restore law and orderliness in Okomu.

Ijaws are peaceful people, and by this, we call on our brothers across the zone to always maintain peace and to not be found wanting against the law.
