Ex-militants warn Avengers against attacking Bayelsa

23 June 2016, 19:00

Delta - Some former militant leaders in Bayelsa State have warned the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) against carrying out attacks in the region.

They have vowed to resist such an onslaught.

The ex-militant leaders led by Africa Ukpariasa, Pastor Reuben and the current local government caretaker committee chairman, Joshua Maciver, agreed to work with the Federal and Bayelsa State governments as well as the security agencies to stamp-out criminality in the state and stop crimes such as pipeline vandalism, sea-piracy, kidnapping, armed robbery and other sundry crimes in the state.

The ex-militant leaders while declaring that they would stamp out criminality from Bayelsa State, commended ‎the Presidential Adviser on Niger Delta, Gen. Paul Boroh‎, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, and the Bayelsa State Government for their commitment to bringing sustainable peace in the state and the Niger Delta region at large.

They reminded members of the NDA they (ex-militants) signed a pact with the federal government in 2009 to drop their armed struggle and embrace peace.

Thus, they warned NDA and other militant groups in the region to steer clear from Bayelsa as they would henceforth make it their duty to police the creeks and the length and breadth of the state.
