Tompolo's meeting with MEND members stopped as soldiers seal off meeting venue

The proposed MEND meeting which was scheduled to hold this morning did not hold as soldiers reportedly sealed off the Ijaw House, venue of the proposed meeting on the orders of the state governor, Dickson Seriake. Sources at the governors office say Seriake had sent a letter to MEND members proposing to meet with them at a later date to discuss their grievances. The group, through its spokesperson, Eric Omare, released a statement condemning the soldiers invasion of Ijaw House. Read the statement after the cut...


"The Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide condemn in the strongest terms the military invasion of Ijaw House, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State; the administrative headquarters of the Ijaw National Congress the Ijaw Youth Council and housing the Bayelsa State Ministry of Ijaw National Affairs and Culture. A combined team of military and police officers in the early hours of Friday, the 24th of July, 2015 invaded and took over Ijaw House, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State to prevent ex-Niger Delta agitators from having their proposed meeting on Saturday, the 25th of July, 2015. This is illegal, unconstitutional and a draw back to the dark days of military dictatorship where Nigerians were deprived of their fundamental rights. The IYC wishes to remind the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, that we are in a constitutional democracy where things are done according to law. The fears of many Nigerians that General Buhari would take Nigeria back to the dark days of dictatorship where there is no regard for human rights are coming to reality. The IYC has it on good authority that President Buhari has an agenda to bomb and destroy the Niger-Delta region especially the Ijaw areas. The military movement into the Niger Delta region we have been reliably informed would commence this week.”the statement read

I don't know who is going to sink it into Buhari's head that he is not a military ruler anymore. He is now a duely elected president and he should know that he does not have the constitutional powers to stop any nigerian from peaceful assembly. It is our fundamental human rights that he is violating just nearly two months in power. Under two months, he is already dividing nigeria into two groups, the constituents that voted for him and the one that didn't vote for him. He can't use the Military to intimidate law abiding citizens. since when assembly of like minds is now a crime in the country? The military have a tough job to do with the nuisance called Boko haram and instead of buhari searching for friendly countries that will supply arms for the military to tackle this menace, he is busy roaming the globe and witch- hunting political enemies. Buhari, STOP the intimidation and do the job you were elected for

APCriminals biggest mistake would be to fuck with these guys, don't tamper with their amnesty payments cos if u do, Nigeria will find it hard to get any crude oil from that region...

Omare, wake up ! Nigerians are no fools. How can Buhari bomb the Niger Delta?

Anonymous said...

MEND my ass, u sell outs. Have always said it that a freedom fighter does not benefit from his or her struggle. Tomplo and his likes thieves were busy collecting contract from GEJ instead of facing the main issues of the niger delta. They tot goodluck will be there for ever now you can see nothing last for ever but the truth.

So everything is now covered under democracy and human rights tenets, including allowing meetings of militant groups? In that case the democratic and human rights of Boko haram and ISIS are being infringed upon by every action taken by authorities to stop their activities, or Perhaps the Nigerian government should wait until MEND proceed from meeting phase to attack phase before stopping them as we are in a democracy.This is laughable. Common guys! Let's be serious for once ,the tenets of democracy and human rights is not for mockery.

it obvious, people just read and comment without reading the lines! Did you hear that it was the President that asked the army to stop the meeting? Didnt you read "The proposed MEND meeting which was scheduled to hold this morning did not hold as soldiers reportedly sealed off the Ijaw House, venue of the proposed meeting on the orders of the state governor, Dickson Seriake"? Please let always read properly and comment wisely.

Dont forget their Governor is a PDP and he was the one that instructed the meeting to be postponed.

Please lets me guided in our comment.
