Remnants of the Niger Delta Liberation Force (NDLF), a defunct militant group in the Niger Delta region, has urged the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to embrace peace and end their destructive activities on oil installations.
In a statement by Mack Anthony, speaking on behalf of the NDLF remnants, said "we are appealing to members of the Niger Delta Avengers to surrender and accept dialogue. No group or individual can fight federal Government."
Mr. Anthony also urged fugitive Government Ekpemupolo, also as Tompolo, to come of his hideout and surrender to the law.
He said, “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."
He added that, “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."
