Ijaw youths across the various clans in the Niger Delta on Thursday staged a massive protest in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State over what they described as the persecution of former President Goodluck Jonathan, his wife Dame Patience and other close associates.

The youths, in a large number, carried several placards with inscriptions that condemned sponsored media attacks and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)’s conspiratorial prosecution of the former first family.

The group demanded an immediate cessation of what it called state-sponsored attacks and warned of a complete shutdown of oil installations should they persist.

It would be recalled that the EFCC ordered the freeze of accounts belonging to the former first lady and through media outlets have bandied several amounts allegedly held by Mrs. Jonathan as being proceeds from crimes.

Some lawyers, while insisting on Mrs. Jonathan’s innocence have insisted that the EFCC is being sensational with the issue as the bank balances of her accounts are far less than the various figures being touted. Mrs. Jonathan on her part has sued the management of Skye Bank in a joint suit with the EFCC.
