Chairmen of Gbaramatu communities in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State have appealed to the Niger Delta AvengersÂ (NDA) to maintain the peace and halt plans to resume hostilities in the region.
The NDA had last Friday declared the resumption on destruction of oil facilities in the region.
But worried by the Â consequences of the planned resumption of hostilities, Kinsmen of ex-militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo alias â€˜Tompolo,â€™ implored the
militant group to adopt dialogue.Â
The Chairman of Kokodiagbene Community in Gbaramatu, Sheriff Mulade, who spoke on behalf of the Chairmen of Â Gbararmatu communities, lauded the NDA for the ceasefire declared months ago, and urged that it should be sustained no matter the provocation.
â€œWe want to appeal to the Niger Delta Avengers to give peace a chance and adopt dialogue because in most cases, your actions negatively affect our environment and image of the region,â€ Mulade who is also an environmental activist said on behalf of the chairmen of Gbararmatu communities.Â
They implored the federal government Â to fulfill its promises to the economic life base of the country, Â particularly the good and peace loving people of Â the oil rich Niger Delta.
