Former militants of the Niger Delta Liberation Force (NDLF) has urged oil pipeline-bombing members of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to surrender and embrace dialogue with the Federal Government.
In a statement by its spokesman Mack Anthony, NDLF said:
“We are appealing to members of the Niger Delta Avengers to surrender and accept dialogue. No group or individual can fight federal Government.”
“We also appeal to Tompolo to surrender himself to the authorities on the part of peace to reign in Gbaramatu communities and parts of Niger Delta.”
“We NDLF have staged FG and until today, we are still nursing our wounds. We also appeal to FG to employ internationally accepted military practice in Niger Delta. We recall during our experience, you guys [soldiers] bombed and burned Ayakoromor and killed several innocent persons.”
“We repeat once again, pipeline bombers are criminals, fighting a selfish course over failed business empire with the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari. We will always support Buhari’s administration to succeed just as we supported former President Goodluck Jonathan.”
