Niger Delta Militants warn politicians


A group of Ex-militants, Conscience of the Niger Delta, has warned some politicians holding top political appointments in the current administration to desist from threatening the country over the National Assembly’s attempt to probe the N40billion alleged fraud in the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC.

The ex-militants in a statement by its Coordinator, Odudoh Okpokiri, called on the politicians, who are allegedly interested in the NDDC for the wrong reasons, to stop sponsoring shadowy groups of fake militants and personal associates to gag the National Assembly from carrying out the probe through threats and mindless blackmail.

The group noted in the statement that the threat attributed to ex-militants calling for the stoppage of NDDC probe was fake as none of its members would stand against the government in cleaning the place since everybody is affected with the ongoing corruption in the country. The group said it knows its members, adding that the statement threatening those who want to probe the NDDC is not from any of its member.
