Ijaw Youths Threaten Complete Shutdown Of Oil Facilities Over Persecution Of Jonathan Family

Ijaw youths from across the various clans in the Niger Delta have today staged a massive protest in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State over what they described as the persecution of former President Goodluck Jonathan, his wife Patience and close associates of theirs.
The youths numbering several thousands carried several placards with inscriptions that condemned sponsored media attacks and EFCC’s conspiratorial prosecution  of the former first family. The group demanded an immediate cessation of what it called state-sponsored attacks and warned of a complete shutdown of oil installations should they persist. It would be recalled that the EFCC ORDERED the freeze of accounts belonging to the former first lady and through media outlets have bandied several amounts allegedly held by Mrs. Jonathan as being proceeds from crimes.
