Groups to MEND: Apologise over Warri explosions

By Emma Arubi

WARRI— AS Nigerians continue their condemnation of the recent bomb blast that aborted the two-day post-amnesty dialogue organized by Vanguard Newspapers in Warri recently, three more groups have called on MEND and Henry Okah to apologise to the management of the company and Niger Delta leaders for the unacceptable and unreasonable action.

The groups, which include the Niger Delta Expedition Force, Delta State Youth Council and the Initiative for Better Power Supply in a statement in Warri, cautioned youths in the region not to allow themselves to be used to scuttle the hard earned peace in the state.

They charged those responsible for the attack to join the Acting President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan to fast-track the rapid infrastructural development of the long neglected area.

Ex-militant leader, General Dickson Yinkore of the Niger Delta Expedition Force on his part, urged non-repentant Niger Delta Freedom Fighters to give government a chance to develop the region so that the fruits of their struggle would be realized.

Similarly, Chairman of Delta State Youth Council, Mr. Hope George, appealed to youths in the state to shun anything capable of jeopardizing the peace, security and human capital development agenda of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s administration.

The Initiative for Better Power Supply, through its leader, Mr. Don Emmanuel Onose, commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives in the dastardly attack and apologized to Vanguard on behalf of all well meaning Niger Deltans.
