A group, the Ijaw Political Justice Group, IPJ, has told the Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, and the Army and Navy commands not to treat the threat to life against the Warri North APGA House of Assembly candidate, Graham Abulu for granted to avoid tension in the area.

The group, in a press statement signed by its spokesman Comrade Emma Tonwei and made available to newsmen said nobody had the monopoly to issue threat on any man irrespective of position or tribe.

According to the statement, the Itsekiris in Warri North, or any part of the state do not have any exclusive right to occupy political office(s) solely in a mixed local government area of Warri North or Warri South and West Local Government Areas in the state.

The group said irrespective of a political party, Ijaws and as well as the Itsekiris had equal rights to political representation in Warri North.

He stressed that the commissioner of Police in the state CP Ari Muhammed and military agents should not treat the threat with a kid-glove, adding that the threat if not addressed timely, might snowball to tension in the area.

The group called on Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Ijaw political leaders in Warri North to prevail on the Itsekiri claim of ownership of the Warri North Local Government Area and the purported threat by suspected persons on the APGA Assembly candidate Comrade Graham Abulu.
