The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide has condemned attacks on Niger Delta activist, Ankio Briggs, and other protesters, by thugs in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital.
Thugs, in the presence of a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and other security agencies, descended on Briggs Tuesday, preventing her from leading a protest against the decision of the government to allocate grazing land to herdsmen.
Briggs said the thugs pushed her down, took her mobile phone, identity cards and other personal effects and injured some of the protesters.
IYC, in a Tuesday statement by its spokesman, Eric Omare, said the assault was unacceptable.
The statement reads: “We condemn the attack on Ann-Kio Briggs and other Niger Delta activists, by hired thugs at Tombia junction while protesting the allocation of land to Fulani herdsmen.
“It is totally unacceptable and undemocratic for Ann-Kio Briggs and other Ijaw activists to be attacked in Ijaw land for expressing their dissent over a government policy. 



“This action does not reflect the collective position of the Ijaw, but an action taken by a few.
“The IYC strongly feels that the protest should be an opportunity to open a debate on the best approach to the manage Fulani herdsmen in Ijaw land and the Niger Delta instead of attacking them.
“The right to assembly and peacefully demonstration, to express contrary views to government policy, is an integral part of democratic governance as guaranteed under the 1999 Constitution (as amended), and Bayelsa State cannot be an exception.
“It is even more regrettable that the display of thuggery was done in the presence of security agents who ought to protect citizens’ right to assembly and expression.


“The IYC, therefore, calls on security agents to investigate those behind the attack and bring them to justice. The role of security agents, who were at the scene of the attack, should be investigated and necessary actions taken.”
