Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari has pleaded with Niger Delta militants particularly the Niger Delta Avengers to stop the pipeline bombings. President Buhari made the plea yesterday, during the breaking of fast with APC leadership at the Presidential Villa, President. Buhari pleaded with Niger Delta militants stop the bombing and destruction of oil and gas installations in the Niger Delta region. Buhari pleaded that those those close to the militants should prevail on them to take it easy in the interest of the nation.
“I honestly don’t know how many factions the militants are in the Niger Delta compared to the north-east where you have the Boko Haram.”
“The technology being deployed by the militants to destroy oil installations is high-tech, the way they can go on high sea and international waters and target oil installations is a national problem. It is affecting development.
“No insurance company will want to insure installations that will end up being blown up and no banks will want to finance such installations.
“Those of you who have friends among the leadership or even the militants themselves should plead with them in the name of God Almighty to take it easy.
“We are in a very difficult time, so we have to organise ourselves. Anybody that says he has any other country than Nigeria should go out and see.”
