The umbrella body of Ijaw youths, the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide, has said terrorists and not Fulani herdsmen are killing people in remote communities across the country.

In a statement yesterday in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, by its spokesman, Eric Omare, IYC condemned the “slaughtering” of innocent Nigerians in the Middle Belt, Southwest and, recently, in Enugu State, Southeast.

The organisation described the herdsmen’s actions as barbaric.

It noted that traditional Fulani herdsmen had conducted their business peacefully for decades without killing their neighbours.

IYC said the alleged sponsored attacks could be a plot by disgruntled persons to pit one ethnic group against the other to destabilise the country.

The statement said: “We believe that the attacks are carried out by terrorists, who disguise as Fulani herdsmen.

“The traditional Fulani herdsmen have been grazing their cattle for decades in different parts of the country without such attacks, until recently when the attacks became persistent.”

It said: “The IYC believes that the attacks by the Fulani herdsmen are deliberate terrorist and religious agenda to wipe out some communities in the Middle Belt and Southern part of the country.

“We call on communities in Niger Delta, especially the Ijaw communities, to be vigilant and watch out for these terrorists disguising as Fulani herdsmen.

“We call on community and youth leaders in different Niger Delta communities to set up structures to prevent such attacks and bring such activities to the knowledge of security agencies.

“The IYC clan and community structures all over Ijaw communities in Nigeria have been directed to set up a special task force to monitor and report activities of these murderers masquerading as Fulani herdsmen.”
