Stop bombings or be crushed, Navy warns militants

According to reports, the Nigeria Navy has again warned Niger Delta militants to desist from bombing of oil facilities or be crushed.


The warning came on the heels of the weekend bombing of oil facilities belonging to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Delta State by suspected members of the Greenland Justice Mandate.

The Navy, which stated that it was closing in on the suspects 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, who stated this when he led a team of medical personnel to offer free medical treatments to the residents of Akenpai community, Yenagoa, said the military was ready to deal with the militants in the Niger Delta region.

According to him, 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,

He expressed optimism 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.”

Usman noted that the naval medical rhapsody to host communities was part of the Chief of Naval Staff’s strategic directives to reach out to their host communities as a way of the Navy’s social responsibility and bringing the people closer to the military.
