The IYC stated that Mr. El-Rufai is inciting the people of Kaduna State, and by implication, the entire North, against Niger Deltans by his statement that Niger Delta militants have been hired to carry out attacks in southern Kaduna.

The Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) on Tuesday took a swipe at Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai for warning of an impending attack on southern Kaduna by Niger Delta militants.

In a statement issued in Yenagoa by IYC spokesman Eric Omare, the group also blamed the lull in the Niger Delta dialogue process on the federal government.

The IYC stated that Mr. El-Rufai is inciting the people of Kaduna State, and by implication, the entire North, against Niger Deltans by his statement that Niger Delta militants have been hired to carry out attacks in Southern Kaduna.

“This statement is reckless and highly condemnable. Mallam El-Rufai, having failed in his duty to protect the lives and properties of the people of Southern Kaduna, should not use innocent Niger Deltans as scapegoats. Niger Deltans have no business going all the way to Kaduna or any part of Nigeria to attack Nigerians,” Mr. Omare said in the press statement.
