Days after oil facilities belonging to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, in Delta State was attacked by suspected members of the Greenland Justice Mandate, NDGJM, the Nigeria Navy has warned militants in the Niger Delta region to stop bombing oil facilities or be crushed.
Disclosing that it was closing in on the suspects, the Navy yesterday restated its determination to rid the Niger Delta region of militants by ensuring that the suspected bombers were arrested and brought to book.
Commander of the Nigeria Naval Ship, NNS, Soroh, Commodore Habib Usman, made this assertion when he led a team of medical personnel to offer free medical treatments to the residents of Akenpai community, Yenagoa.
Expressing the readiness of the military to deal with Niger Delta militants, he said the recent bombings in some parts of the region were part of attempts by some miscreants to bring disaffection between the various communities in the Niger Delta and government.
Usman was optimistic that the military was now more ready to deal with all forms of illegalities that would affect peace in the Niger Delta region.
“We require the support of the communities to provide us with information because they know these hoodlums. They should give us the information and we will go after them and this time whoever comes with any type of illegality will have himself to blame,” he said.
