MILITANTS in the Niger Delta Region have threatened to resume attacks on oil and gas facilities in the region over alleged plans to replace the coordinator of the Federal Government Presidential Amnesty Programme, Prof Charles Dokubo.
Though their claims could not be verified from the presidency as at press time, the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers, RNDA and the coalition of nine militant groups gave the warning, Friday, in a
statement issued by leader of the group, 'General' Johnmark Ezonbi They accused a wanted ex-militant warlord of being the brain behind the ploy. The statement reads: "We have it on good authority that a wanted ex-militant leader from Delta State who has been the brain behind attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta region, is trying to impose one of his relatives as coordinator of the amnesty programme. His ploy is under the guise of the fact that Delta State is to produce the next coordinator of the programme.
