48 hour ultimatum to Governor Dickson…apologize to Annkio Briggs or…..
On behalf of the Joint Revolutionary Council, an alliance of key agitating groups across the Niger Delta, we wish to declare a 48 hour ultimatum to the Governor Henry Seriake Dickson to apologize to foremost Ijaw female activist, Annkio Briggs for the brutal assault on her person and her colleagues during a recent peaceful protest in Bayelsa by paid agents of the Governor.
If this is not done, key agitating groups within the Bayelsa space will be activated to undermine the Dickson Government.
Within that 48 hour space, key agitating groups will first renounce Amnesty and then commence series of process driven activities to drive home our point and position.
It is unfortunate that the same government who many Ijaws struggled and clamored for to win in the 2016 elections would now turn out to be a government of tyranny, incompetence and ineptitude.
It is unfortunate that today, the same bandit elements, armed robbers and unrepentant hardened criminals, who worked against Governor Dickson’s second term are the same band of renegade satanists that would be hired to mug, mob and lynch Annkio Briggs and her fellow protesters.
This represents the fullness of treachery and tyranny.
We will not allow this happen in Bayelsa State, the cradle of Ijaw nation.
A word is enough for the wise.
Joint Revolutionary Council
