Clark Condemns Ethnic Clashes in Warri Councils

A prominent Ijaw leader and former Minister of Information, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark, yesterday condemned the renewed ethnic clashes in the riverine areas of the three Warri Councils (Warri South, Warri South-West and Warri North). He bared his mind during a visit to the council areas yesterday. “One’s expectation had been that the crisis was dying down with the active intervention of the state Governor, Chief James Onanefe Ibori. His risky visits through the Escravos to towns/villages and oil installations would have yielded a better result than what is happening now,” Clark said. Clark condemned what he described as “the unwarranted attack on the Itsekiri village called Abigborodo,” saying that those who carried out the attack “must be someone or a group of persons who does not want peace to return to Warri and its environs”. The Ijaw leader said it was unbelievable to hear that some youths believed to be Ijaws would attack the village of the Secretary to the Delta State Government (SSG), who has been in a good working relationship with them since his appointment.
