Ijaw youths under the umbrella of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) have concluded arrangements to enforce the ban it placed on some consumable products they consider to be fake which are brought into Bayelsa State from Delta and Rivers.
Udengs Eradiri, President of IYC, who disclosed this during a live interview on a local radio station in Yenagoa at the weekend, said the enforcement would begin on Monday, March 14, 2016.
He listed some of such consumables as bread and sachet water which he said were mostly brought into Bayelsa from neighbouring Delta and Rivers states.
Eradiri warned those involved in the act to desist from it or they would face unpleasant consequences.
He lamented that the state had become a dumping ground for all manner of fake products especially bread and sachet water, saying he would set up a task force from the youth body to monitor such activities.
