The Nigerian Navy has urged militants to cease vandalization of oil pipelines in the country and instead seek dialogue with the Federal Government.
In a statement released by Naval director of Information department, Christian Ezekobe, the maritime armed force said:
“What has posed some level of challenge is the re-emergence of militancy in the Niger Delta – the blowing up of oil and gas infrastructure, which is crucial to the nation’s survival. This we are grappling with right now.
“Over the news you would have heard of various levels of arrest being made and handover of suspects to DSS also being made and so on. But we are praying for a political solution a way of dialogue and political intervention. However, where that fails, we are more than ready to take the military option.”
