Militant group, Aggrieved Youth Movement, AYM, has warned Niger Delta Avengers and other militant groups not to come close to Rivers State.
Leader of the group, ‘General’ Don Waney, said he was ready to surrender his arms and ammunition and embrace the amnesty offered by Governor Nyesom Wike, urged militant groups in the oil-rich region, including the NDA, to embrace peace and put an end to the destruction of oil facilities.
Explaining that the state could not achieve any form of development without peace, Waney added that his group was not into kidnapping or any form of violence.
The militant leader said, “On a strong note, we are non-violent and we shall remain so in our collective agitation for a better ONELGA (Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA), Orashi and Rivers State.
“In the light of this, we call on the Niger Delta Avengers group to leave ONELGA and Orashi region out of their targets.
“We are against the bombing and destruction of vital oil and gas installations in our communities. We shall not allow them or any of their type to enter our land.”
