The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has said there was no truth in the publication claiming it was planning coordinated attacks on military facilities across the Niger Delta region.

IYC spokesperson, in a statement issued in Yenagoa on Sunday by its spokesman, Amb. Binebai Princewill said the story emanated from the pit of hell.

He claimed mischief makers and enemies of the region and Ijaw nation were behind the story.

“The council would have ignored the said publication but for the times we are in.

“It is very key and important that we clear the air to the Nigerian Military that the IYC has no issue with the military, not to talk of attacking them,” it read.

The council said the false publication, originating from the Facebook Lite page of Officers and Cadets Worldwide, also called on military units to be vigilant and combat-ready.

IYC recalled it had on March 18, 2024, condemned the dastard attack that killed 16 military men in Delta.

“We did condemn the gruesome murder in strong terms and its entirety the killing of soldiers on a peace mission to Okuama in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State on March 14, 2024.

“Hence we are wondering where this misleading information is coming from,” it read.

The council, therefore, warned mischief makers to keep clear of IYC while urging Nigerians to disseminate only true and credible information to the public.

“In setting the records straight, IYC has a communication channel that is used in passing information for the Ijaw youths across the world and to Nigerians in general,” the statement read. (NAN)
