Niger Delta Avengers agree to conditional ceasefire

21 August 2016, 09:15

Port Harcourt - Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has agreed to a conditional ceasefire in the Niger Delta region, reports Daily Post.

The group succumbed to pressure and plea from monarchs and leaders of the region, who asked them on Friday to stop further hostilities.

The monarchs and elders of the region who made the plea during a stakeholders meeting on Warri, Delta State, said the call for ceasefire was to allow them negotiate with the Federal Government genuinely.

The militants had on several occassions rebuffed all government offers to enter into talks, insisting that their campaign will continue unabated, reports News 24

The militants had insisted that they will only participate in any peace dialogue with the government so long as the mediators were foreigners and international observers 

The group on Saturday, however, agreed to a temporary ceasefire

Mudock Agbinibo, the NDA spokesperson, said the group would agree to a ceasefire to enable it discuss with the federal government’s team.

It, however, demanded absolute sincerity on the part of government, warning that it would not allow the discussion to be turned into a political jamboree.
Agbinibo added: “We are warning this government of President Muhammadu Buhari not to turn the essence of genuine peace talk and dialogue to political jamboree that is prevailing now where all manner of social media agitators and criminals have been sponsored by the job seeking corrupt political class to save faces before the government of the day."
