30 May 2016, 20:36

Abuja - The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and the Coordinator of the Niger Delta Presidential Amnesty Programme, Rtd Gen. Paul Boroh, has bemoaned incessant vandalism of infrastructure in the region.

He pointed out such illegality was to the detriment of the local economy that was heavily reliant on oil.

“It is saddening that the activities of these vandals, is having a direct effect on the economy of the nation" Boroh said.

He also expressed concern on the way vandals were freely carrying out mayhem by bombing oil and gas installations without the intervention of the community.

Boroh spoke after a series of meetings in Warri, Delta State, aimed at creeks finding a lasting solution to the recent attacks on the nation’s oil and gas installations in the Niger Delta region.

Among leaders he met are Pere Naira Williams Ogoba at Oproza in Gbaramatu Kingdom.

Williams pledged his community’s commitment to complement government efforts to curtail such attacks but decried the alleged violation of locals’ rights by the military.
