Delta militants declare ceasefire, want Dasuki freed 'immediately'

12 June 2016, 10:31

Abuja – The new militant group Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF), which claimed affiliation with Niger Delta Avengers, has reportedly declared ceasefire.

According to The Cable, the group which had initially threatened to launch six missiles in the region and to shut Nigeria’s airspace, said it had decided to do otherwise after the federal government offered to dialogue. 

The group, however, said the government would have to adhere to its demands, for peace to be sustained. It demanded among other things, the immediate release of former security adviser, Sambo Dasuki and the reversal of the order to freeze the bank accounts of Government Ekpemupolo, better known as Tompolo.

"We shall continue to engage in dialogue if our demands are met," the group was quoted as saying.

A report by Vanguard, however, said the militants in the Niger Delta were falling apart over the negotiations with the federal government.
