Abuja - The northern socio-political organisation, Arewa Consultative Forum, has warned Niger Delta ex-militants not to threaten a former Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.), Punch reports.

In a statement issued by its national publicity secretary Muhammad Ibrahim in Kaduna, the group condemned the statement credited to the Niger Delta ex- militants: Mujahideen Dokubo-Asari, Victor Ben Ebikabowei aka. Boy Loaf, and Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo.

The northern group said neither Danjuma nor any citizen of the country for that matter should be threatened with attacks by the ex-militants, who have been threatening fire and brimstone should President Goodluck Jonathan loses the February 14 presidential poll.

The trio were quoted as saying that should Jonathan lose, it would be seen as direct attack on the Ijaw nation.

They also threatened to unleash violence on the country and take back the Niger Delta oil.
