WARRI- Niger-Delta Survival Synergy, NDSS, weekend, warned any group of group of persons that have hatched the idea of bombing Universities in the Southern part of the country to call off the plan, saying the South would no longer condone wanton destruction and senseless killings by Boko Haram.
Coordinator of the group, Okiroro Iki-Ebieroma in a statement in Warri, Delta state said, “If the so-called group or groups loath Western Education, we don’t, so they must define their territory. We will no longer tolerate senseless killings of our people and wanton destruction of their property. You must not encroach into our territory with your insanity showcase.
His words, “ It must be unequivocally stated that if any more of our person goes down, we shall react because there is a lion and a sheep in every man”.
He said the menace of the Boko Haram sect could not be compared with the militancy in the Niger Delta, as the militants in the Niger Delta had every reason to fight when dialogue failed, as the government of the day then was impervious to all intellectual engagement.
