The Niger Delta Avengers on Monday said it was ready for a dialogue with the Federal Government.
The militants, however, gave conditions for the peace talk.
In a statement published on its website, the group said the Federal Government must suspend the purchase of crude oil from the Niger Delta region.
The militants also asked President Muhammadu Buhari not to turn the proposed peace talk and dialogue to a political jamboree.
The group said it only needed a genuine attitude and conducive atmosphere that would “make us commit to any proposed dialogue and lasting peace talk.”
In the statement signed by the NDA’s spokesperson, Mudoch Agbinibo, the militants also asked the Federal Government to involve member states of the multinational oil corporations to commit independent mediators to the proposed dialogue.
It said the peace talk would set up a framework for achieving the short, medium and long-term demands of the Niger Delta to bring about a lasting peace.
