Dislodged militants in Isawo, Igbo
Olomu and Arepo, Ibafo and Awawa creeks in Lagos and Ogun locations are
reportedly finding its way back
The Oodua People’s Congress (OPC),
on Saturday, said reports at its disposal revealed that the fear of return of
the militants expressed by the residents was justified.
This came as the Nigerian Air Force
continued its onslaught against the militants.
“We are collaborating with the police
and other security agencies, ‘’ Odua People’s Congress has said.
“From our reports, we gathered that
the militants are into this heinous crime because they cannot siphon petrol
since the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has stopped supplying
the product through the Atlas Cove.”
“We found out that these men are not the real
Niger Delta militants. They are the Ijaws
from Ondo State, who came to Arepo and other communities to vandalize
petroleum pipelines and steal fuel.
“We have held a meeting of the
National Coordinating Council of OPC where we analysed how they are sneaking
into the homes of some of their people in the area,”.
The OPC Coordinator, Ganiyu Adams disclosed that the group decided to complement the air raids of the military by ensuring that
whoever escapes from the creek is not allowed into the communities.
