…As Army urges them to utilize amnesty programme
Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND) has been warned by repentant militants against resuming attacks on oil facilities in the region. They gave the warning, yesterday, at a forum organized for them by the Association for Non-Violence in the Niger Delta (ANND) and the Niger Delta Ex-agitators Forum (NDEF) in
Port Harcourt, . Rivers State
In a day peace concert tagged Expression 2012, with theme: Core values of the Amnesty Programme – the gain so far; the facilitator and founder of ANND, Kennedy West, cautioned MEND that the era of violence was over.
“It is also pitiable that baseless, aimless and fruitless acts as depicted by some elements parading themselves as MEND in the bombing of oil pipeline in Brass still strive. We condemn this attack.”
