Abuja - The Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC) sent a warning out to President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, claiming that the current administration should give up its ambitions of arresting former President Goodluck Jonathan over an ongoing fraud probe.
According to Punch, Ufengs Eradiri, IYC President, has advised Government to cast its eyes away from Jonathan and instead probe the Halliburton bribery case under ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.
While speaking on renewed militancy in the Niger Delta region, the youths claimed that the opening of the Maritime University in Okerenkoko is the first step towards stamping out militant groups within the state.

“If they want us to talk, they must first open the Maritime University and start admitting students, then we would now sit and talk. The same issues for which Adaka Boro and Ken Saro-Wiwa were killed are the same issues the Avengers are raising.
“There are no Avengers anywhere. Settle these issues and the avengers would fizzle away,” said Eradiri.
This Day reports that the IYC has previously sent out a warning to the Buhari-led administration, claiming that the organization would move against any attempt to persecute Jonathan.
