It was learnt that Comrade Abulu Graham hailed from Polobubo, an Ijaw community in the Warri North LGA and he is currently contesting for Delta State House of Assembly under APGA.

According to him, some highly placed Itsekiri leaders were saying that Ijaws do not have a right to contest elections in the LGA, adding that every elective and appointive position of the LGA was an exclusive right of the Itsekiri people, except they decided to relegate.

The statement alleged that the Itsekiri regency was also against the Ijaw contesting for the State Assembly position of Warri North.

The source said there was a potential threat from militant leaders in Ijaw to strike if any harm is done to their son Graham Abulu.

Concerned Ijaw leaders in the LGA had called on Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and Commissioner of Police Delta State, the Army and Navy command in the state to prevail on the Itsekiri people to avert another crisis in the area.
