Pipeline Attacks: FG Deploys Team to Unmask Niger Delta Avengers





The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Brigadier-General Paul Boroh (retd.), has dispatched a team of investigators to the Niger Delta in an effort to identify the masterminds of the recent attacks on oil facilities in the region, PUNCH reports.

Chief Security Officer to the Amnesty Office, Lieutenant Colonel Olusegun Okungbure, told PUNCH’s correspondent on the telephone on Sunday that the office was working with security agencies in the area on information sharing and intelligence on how to curb the sabotage of oil platforms in the region.

He also said that a meeting had also been scheduled between officials of the Delta State Government and stakeholders in the area on how to bring the attacks to an end.

According to Okungbure,

The Special Adviser has sent people to the region to see if we can identify the perpetrators of this act. Secondly, he has also condemned the attacks on all these oil platforms.  He has also interfaced with the security agencies for the protection of the pipelines and security in the general area. Even as we speak now, we just finished a form of telephone conversation with the JTF Commander, who just returned from Delta State.  These are some of the things we are doing.

We have even tasked the ex-agitators, the ones captured in the programme, that they should be able to fish out these people because their own reputation of embracing peace and accepting amnesty is being threatened by this kind of attacks. I think everyone is well aware of the implications.

      Shut that thing you call a mouth; because you haven’t lost a close relation to Fulani herdsmen abi. And he hasn’t deployed any troop whatsoever. Thanks God Aba people settled their scores the way they know best. Hoping on buhari led government on Fulani herdsmen is just like hoping for snow in Nigeria.

    How do you expect the bigot to treat the 5%?
    The marauders are the his 95% Buhari is Fulani and Fulani is Buhari.
    Buhari cant pretend, When he hates you he goes after you and when he likes you like he does to the herdsmen he wont pretend that he hates them.

    In his mind Non boko haram infested sates should taste the destruction of herdsmen.
    Wait until media chart and watch his reaction. The old man wont pretend.

    The pipelines are more important than human lives. According to Oby Ezekwesili, If the Chibok girls were pipelines or oil wells, we would have found them by any means possible. Sad.

    what a government! talk about priorities. *smh! Herdsmen are untouchable. The Northern Governors warned to stop calling them Fulani Herdsmen, but they can’t stop adding Niger-delta to Militants… rubbish!!

    GOD Please forgive for saying this but judging from these comments above I am really not appreciating the haphazard efforts of Dame Flora Louise Shaw in forcibly putting us all together. It seems despite our inter tribal marriages and all we still remain divided and are far from unity and this is truly sad…

    Sometimes I read the comments here and wonder if you guys actually get all your news from BellaNaija or just pretend to.


    As you can see, he has clearly been reticent in both cases, speaking through a proxy. There’s a case for a public address everytime a tragedy happens (I would argue not even Obama and Cameron do that) but saying he hasn’t been partial to the pipelines.

    There was a terrorist attack/mass murder on the country’s soil, he should fuckin say something directly and immediately rather than using his PR proxy!!
