There was a mixed reaction regarding the news on channels tv website. It was recall that A group of militants in Akwa-Cross region under the aegis of Bakassi Strike Force was seen on Nigeria Tv calling on the federal government to listen to the agitations of the Niger Delta Avengers.
The Bakassi militant group condemned the incessant bombings of oil pipelines in the oil rich Niger Delta region by the Avengers, Channels TV reports.
Speaking at Esuk Mba, in Akpabuyo local government area of Cross River state, Simple Benjamin, the leader of the group, advised the government to adopt the approach of the American Ambassador to Nigeria who is an advocate for dialogue as war alone cannot solve their problems in tackling the issue.
“It is cheaper to make peace as war leads to more destruction. Fellow compatriots of the Niger Delta Avengers Please sheathe your sword and give peace a chance. I think you have made your point, hence you should give government chance to respond. Enough of the bombings, please.
Reacting to the trend “ CHANNELS TV YOU AND YOUR PAY MASTERS CAN DO BETTER THAN HIRING SOME JOBLESS BOYS TO POSE AS FELLOW NIGER DELTA MILLITANTS IN ORDER TO COUNTER THE AVENGERS. THE LAST TIME I CHECKED MILLITANCY WAS CONSIDERED A CRIME AND I WONDER WHY THE CHEAP PUBLICITY? He Said
