After routing militants, kidnappers, honour comes to Gen. Bello

23 July 2011

To hundreds of ex-militants and their various ‘Generals’, many of whom have repented and are currently enjoying the dividends of the federal government amnesty programme by virtue of their skilled trainings abroad or elsewhere, Major General Sarki Yakin Bello, former Commander of the Joint Task Force for Niger Delta, code named ‘Operation Restore Hope’ and currently the General Officer Commanding 82 division of the Nigeria Army, will forever remain green in their memory.

For ex-militant leaders like Government Tompolo and his headquarters in Camp 5 inside the deadly creeks off Warri where Gen. Bello who once vowed to capture Tompolo dead or alive, chased him to, before taking over the camp, the fear of General Bello at the height of the so called ‘oil wars’ was the beginning of wisdom.
