Ex-militant leader warns against castigating amnesty programme

By Onozure Dania

A Niger Delta ex-militant leader, Mr. Ayakpo Niekebi of Niger Delta Advocate for Peace, NDA, with membership from  Ijaw, Urhobo and Itsekiri ethnic nationalities, has warned Mr Michael Johnny, Bonny Gawei and Francis Muturu to desist from inflammatory statements against the Presidential Amnesty Programme or incur the wrath of Egbesu.

Niekebi, who spoke in Warri, Delta State, warned that any further anti-Kingsley Kuku comments from the trio, ex-militants from the region would have no option but to excommunicate them.

Niekebi  noted that the trio were on their own and do not represent the views of the people of the Niger Delta region, advising youths  to be mindful of the antics of Johnny, Gawei and Muturu.

According to him,  they want to rock the boat after gaining immensely from the amnesty programme, adding that such cheap means of seeking to gain favour from the incoming administration of General Muhammadu Buhari will not work in the interest of the region.
