Bomb Threat: Ijaw group pleads with militants

Nigerian Observer
19 October 2011

WARRI-A Niger -Delta group at the weekend appealed to militant groups in the region to have a rethink over the ultimatum given to the Muslims from the Northern part of the country who are resident in Niger Delta, over their bomb threat.

The Niger Delta militants had last week threatened to bomb all Muslim worship centres across the South-South if the bombing of the self style Boko Haram sect continues in the nation.

In a statement made available to The NIGERIAN OBSERVER and signed by Yusuf Eregbene and Ozobo Austine, President and Secretary of the National Council of Ijaw activists, said attacking the Muslim worship centres in a retaliatory measure to avenge for their lost brothers killed in the North will be too hazardous as innocent lives who may not even be northerners will be lost.
