PRESS RELEASE

April 6th, 2017.

 

 

On behalf of the National Executive Council of the Ijaw Youth Council –IYC Worldwide, Elders and all well-meaning sons and daughters of the Ijaw Ethnic Nationality, we vehemently condemn the sudden and unlawful killing of a son of the Niger Delta Region, a father to many, a fine and intelligent Naval Officer and a defender of the collective Sovereignty of Nigeria.

It would be recalled that late Rear Admiral Daniel Ikoli a former member of the Presidential Committee on Arms, in the Fleet of the Western Naval Command (WNC), who was recently elevated to the rank of a Rear Admiral in the Nigeria Navy, was brutally assassinated in his residence in Apapa, Lagos State that is within the Lagos Naval base, on Wednesday 5th March, 2017, without having the pleasure of his new position. This kind of killing that occurred in his own home within the Lagos Naval Base leaves no one in doubt that his actual killers may be within the Lagos Naval Base. It also creates a meaningful suspicion that the reason for his death may not be unconnected with his recent elevation within the Nigerian Navy.

We therefore irrevocably call on the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, Inspector General of Police, the Chief of Naval Staff, and all relevant security agencies to immediately swing into a full scale investigation aimed at unraveling the killers of Rear Admiral Daniel Ikoli and bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to book so justice would be served.

We further sympathize with the Federal Government, the good people of the Niger Delta Region, the Nigerian Navy and the immediate family he left behind. We pray that the Almighty God give the family the grace to bear the irreparable loss.

It would be stated for emphasis that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We call on all relevant security agencies to do a detailed investigation into the immediate and remote cause of death, with the aim of bringing the architects of this murderous act to book and serve as a deterrent to many who have such evil intent and as solace to the immediate family that his death was not swept under the carpet.
