Warri - Top militant leaders, who have been attacking oil installation in the Niger Delta and major oil depots in the South-West have given conditions under which they would stop the renewed bombing, reports Vanguard.
The bombing of oil installations in the Niger Delta commenced last week as militants blew up major oil and gas pipelines in the area.
The militants said they would only drop their arms when the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu meets and negotiates with them.

The militants gave the conditions after a secret meeting involving their leaders from the Niger Delta and their counterparts in Alepo, Agric, Epe, Ikorodu, Itoki and Igbokoda areas of Lagos.
They are also demanding amnesty for their members to avoid being persecuted by security agencies.
They said they had been pleading for amnesty since the days of the President Jonathan’s administration but nobody took them into consideration.
The militants said they were not against the government but have genuine issues yet to be addressed by successive administrations in this country.
