An ex-militant, Mr Ibinabo Okoroji, has appealed to the Federal Government and relevant agencies to check gun-running in the Niger Delta.
Okoroji made the appeal in an interview at the post-Amnesty Camp in Obubra,
. Cross River
He said that although the ex-militants had embraced the amnesty programme of the Federal Government and had submitted their guns, there were people in the region, who were still involved in arms deals.
He said that if nothing was done to check such activity, some youths in the area could be lured into another round of arms struggle and militancy.
"We have submitted our guns but the people that are selling the guns are still there doing the business", he said.
