It'll be a shame for FG to negotiate with Delta Niger Avengers – Oduku

16 June 2016, 08:07

Niger Delta - Commandant General of the Riverine Security, Bibi Oduku has urged the Federal Government not to negotiate with the Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, as it would portray a sign of weakness, The Sun reports.

Oduku said that the intentions of the militants were ill-conceived and that negotiating with them will put the FG in a weak position as it would hand over power to the militants.

He added that the problem of the Niger Delta was solved through the amnesty package of the late President, Umara Yar'Adua.

Oduku opined that as soon as the FG settled with these militants, it would be a sign of weakness and that other groups will exploit this weakness.

News24 Nigeria previously reported that the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, selected a 7-member team to open a dialogue with the FG.
