Igbifa called on security agencies and the Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, to fish out the killers.

"We are appealing to security agencies to immediately probe into the circumstances that led to this scholar, who until his painful death was an advocate of peace. We are also calling on the Bayelsa State Government to intervene and ensure that his killers are brought to justice," he stated.

"We will not accept anything other than the arrest and prosecution of these murderers. As IYC, we are ready to work with security agencies to apprehend these hoodlums as we pray God to give the deceased family the fortitude to bear this loss." he added.
