Assistant Secretary of IYC, Eastern Zone, Ibiso Harry, said the action was directed by the IYC President, Peter Igbifa, following the expiration of the deadline given to the Federal Government to constitute a substantive board for the NDDC.

A team of policemen with security vehicles were spotted at the complex monitoring the protesting youths, who vowed to remain until the NDDC board was inaugurated.

While demanding the constitution of the board of the agency, the protesting Ijaw youths took some time to cook goat meat peppersoup and yam for themselves at the venue of the demonstrations.
