The Joint Military Task Force (JTF) code named Operation Restore Hope has defended its continued presence in the Niger Delta region.
The JTF, reacting to recent comments by a Niger Delta activist, Mr Tony Uranta that peace can only return to the region if the security outfit returns to the barracks, noted that contrary to his submissions, the insurgence in the region had not completely receded.

The spokesman of JTF, Lt. Col Timothy Antigha said Uranta’s argument that JTF should be pulled out of the Niger Delta failed to take cognizance that “some renegade militants admitted publicly that several thousands of assault rifles, anti-aircraft guns and rocket propelled grenade launchers and other military grade weapons, were not submitted to the amnesty committee”
