Former senator who represented Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has appealed to Niger Delta militants not to add to the woes of the nation.
He spoke in obvious reaction to the threat issued on Tuesday by the Supreme Egbesu Liberation Fighters to destroy infrastructure in Lagos and Abuja.
“An appeal to the Niger Delta militants not to add to our woes,” Sani said on its Twitter handle.
They militants their threat on the neglect suffered by the Niger Delta area over they years.
The Supreme Egbesu Liberation Fighters, a group of Niger Delta militants, has threatened to destroy infrastructure in Lagos and Abuja.
In a video shown on Tuesday by Africa Independent Television, AIT, the militant said the federal government had failed to deliver on the amnesty programme put in place for them.
Reading from a statement, one of the militants who was masked said: “Over the years, the Niger Delta people have made frantic efforts to create an enabling environment… but to our great dismay, the Nigerian government over the years has decided to handle the issues of the Niger Delta with kid gloves. They have betrayed the struggle and have left the people to their fate.
“Rather, what is visible is the presence of military gunboat and the numerous military personnel dispersed to the Niger Delta who are killing, raping, and maiming the innocent people of the region.
“Look at the security surveillance contract taking place in our region through the federal government these agencies in place have decided to shortchange our people. Now in our territorial waters, it is an Israeli company that is providing waterway security which we have competent hands with expert knowledge to manage.
“Don’t worry, because we are coming to destroy all your infrastructure in Abuja and Lagos. As a group committed to giving total liberation to our people, we will destroy the oil facilities both onshore and offshore in no distant time, we will be seen to be crippling the Nigerian economy.”
