LAGOS – FORMER Commander of the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger-Delta, MEND, Victor Ebikabowei Ben, alias General Boyloaf and head of the Odua People’s Congress, OPC, Gani Adams, held a secret meeting, Wednesday, in Lagos.

Details of the meeting, which lasted several hours, were not disclosed, but a dependable source said, “OPC and ex-MEND officials have agreed on a working alliance for the March 28 presidential elections.”

“Part of their resolution is that both groups will work together in the event of any premeditated violence against the South-South and South-West at the general elections,” the source added.

Attempts to reach both leaders for comment after the meeting proved abortive,
