Lagos/Ogun Killings: Ijaw And Yoruba Nations To Hold Emergency Summit


The recent spate of mindless killings of innocent people in some Ogun and Lagos communities by some bandits have created worries in the Yoruba and Ijaw nations because of the shared respect of the right to life and given the insinuations about the identity of these killers.

The allegation that the killers are from Niger Delta without proper investigation and apprehension of any suspects is capable of creating conflicts between the peoples of the two nations if responsible leaders do not quickly step in to ensure that justice is done for the victims and measures evolved to ensure that such a situation never recurs.

Leaders across the two nations have out of serious concern for precious lives lost in these cold-blooded murders launched investigations into what happened in those communities with the aim of nudging the state to apprehend the perpetrators and put a stop to such callousness.

Arising from such efforts and high level contacts, Ijaw Leader Chief E. K. Clarke and Afenifere Leader, Chief R. F. Fasoranti have agreed that a joint consultative meeting of Ijaw and Yoruba nations must hold quickly to nip this crisis in the bud and reaffirm the joint humanity of both nations against wanton destruction of human lives symbolized by the atrocious carnage.
