The Ijaw National Congress (INC) has condemned the spate of bombing of oil facilities in the Niger Delta region by suspected militants.

The umbrella body of the Ijaw ethnic nationality also called on the Federal Government to convene a meeting of stakeholders of the Niger Delta region to address the current situation in the region and find a lasting solution to the attacks on oil installations.

In a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Monday after a meeting with traditional rulers, elders and opinion leaders of the Ijaw ethnic group, the President of INC, Mr. Boma Obuoforibo, also appealed to the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to immediately stop the bombing of oil facilities.

He said, “We condemn the current resurgence of bombing of pipelines and other oil installations in the Niger Delta as this ultimately is counterproductive to the Niger Delta region and the Nigerian nation.
