Ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Mr. Smart Amola (aka) ‘General’ Gentle, Thursday, called on the Niger Delta Avengers to stop further attacks on oil installations in the country.
Amola stressed that the attacks had negative effects on the economy of the region and the country at large.
Also, the Niger Delta Sustainable Development Advocacy, NDSDA, has also called on Ijaw elders and leaders of thought not to allow the Avengers and other militants blow up oil pipelines in the region anymore.
NDSDA, in a statement by Greg Afoegba, however, commended the leaders for their recent intervention, urging militants to embrace dialogue and cease hostilities and stop their hostilities.
It said: “Niger Delta region cannot be taken out of Nigeria. As a nation, we have a government in place from the presidency, national and states Assemblies, judiciary, state and local governments governed by the 1999 constitution. Restructuring is a continuous process because as nations develop.”
The group urged the angry militants to lay down their arms and give peace a chance in the region.
