WARRI- Following intelligence report that the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, had concluded plans to bomb some states in the Niger Delta, South-East and South-West geo-political zones, militants in the Niger Delta, have volunteered to team up with the security agencies, especially the armed forces to repel the rebellious group.
Spokesman of the militants under the aegis of Niger Delta Liberation Force, NDLF, “Captain” Mark Anthony, in a statement, Tuesday, said the Israeli forces contracted by the government cannot provide adequate security.
He volunteered special security services for President Goodluck Jonathan and members of his immediate family because of the precarious security situation in the country.
The group which warned Boko Haram members to steer clear of Niger-Delta said: “If they ignore this warning, the counter reaction will be disastrous.
“We offer on behalf of the good people of Niger Delta and Nigerians to partner with the security forces, especially the army to give voluntary security services to President Jonathan and his immediate family over the precarious security situation created by the Islamic sect whose suicide bombings in
and other cities in the country had created total insecurity.” Abuja
“This call for partnership becomes expedient, especially with the porous security network and backstabbing at high security quarters, which gave the feeling that the life of the President and his immediate family members is at risk,” the statement added.
