Thunder Fire You And Ultimatum, Wike Blasts Ijaw Youth Council


Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike has lashed out at the Ijaw Youth Council for giving him a 48-hour ultimatum.

Recall that the Ijaw Youth Council in Abuja issued a two-day ultimatum last week to Governor Nyesom Wike, to unconditionally release the state’s governorship aspirant, Farah Dagogo from police custody.

In a video trending online, the governor during a thanksgiving service for winning the 17 oil wells from Imo state, asked if the IYC knew who they were dealing with, he fired back at them saying “Thunder fire you and ultimatum”

Reports say the demand formed part of a peaceful protest on Friday by the IYC led by its Abuja Chapter Chairman, Marbo Ogomugo.

A statement issued from the protest says…

“The Ijaw Youth Council Chairman, Ogomugo Marbo , and other faithful Ijaw Youths resident in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, took the streets of Abuja to demand the unconditional relaese of her brother, father and son, Farah Dagogo, from Nigerian Police custody in Rivers State.

“While tendering a press statement in the Police Headquarters in Abuja to petition the freedom of her Ijaw son, Dagogo, who is been illegally arrested in River state, the pressure group pleaded with the appropriate authorities to call Governor Wike to order, ensure the release of the law maker representing Bonny/Degema federal constituency in River state and desist henceforth from oppressing Ijaws in general

“We have for the past few years watched closely the terror orchestrated on the Ijaws in River state by the state governor, Chief Nyosome Wike and his cohort and it is becoming unbearable, undemocratic and against democratic norm.”

Marbo concluded by giving the Rivers State Government a two-day ultimatum to ensure the release of the Farah Dagogo.
