Niger Delta Militants
FG sends investigation team to fish out culprits
Those in charge of the Amnesty Program in the region have also solicited for the help of former militants to fish out the culprits of the recent bombings.
The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (Rtd.) has sent a team of investigators to fish out those behind the recent bombings in the Niger-Delta region.
This is coming on the heels of the destruction of Chevron and Shell facilities, allegedly by a new militant group, the Niger-Delta Avengers.
Reports say those in charge of the Amnesty Program in the region have also solicited for the help of former militants to fish out the culprits of the recent bombings.
Punch reports that the Chief Security Officer to the Amnesty Office, Lt. Col. Olusegun Okungbure, said “The Special Adviser has sent people to the region to see if we can identify the perpetrators of this act.
“Secondly, he has also condemned the attacks on all these oil platforms. He has also interfaced with the security agencies for the protection of the pipelines and security in the general area.
“Even as we speak now, we just finished a form of telephone conversation with the JTF Commander, who just returned from Delta State. These are some of the things we are doing.”
