The Niger Delta Youths Solidarity Movement has urged President Buhari to disregard the widely reported coup plot.

The group said it is the handwork of militants in the Niger Delta who want to achieve their aim through falsehood.

They also frowned at the condition of the environment in the Niger Delta region, adding that they prefer to dialogue with the President to seek a way forward.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Comrade Kpokpogri Prince said “We urge President Muhammadu Buhari to disregard stories of impending coup allegedly being hatched by militant groups in the Niger Delta region because they are mere rumour being concocted by oil thieves and miscreants who detest the presence of navy and army in the region.

“As responsible citizens and stakeholders in the Niger Delta, we feel concerned on the development in the region which obviously would not do anybody any good, and there is urgent need to debunk the rumour which tends to pitch the president against the military for their selfish motives.”

The group also revealed that some ex military officers encourage militants to carry out illegal bunkering deals.

Adding that the proceeds from the illegal trade of crude oil is used to purchase the sophisticated weapons for the militants.

“In view of the bad light in which the militants with the active backing of the ex-military officers sought to cast the entire Niger Delta region, we deem it imperative to warn them to stop blackmailing the institution of the military so as not to force them into attacking the region,” they said.

The Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) alleged that some military officers invited them to be part of a coup to overthrow President Buhari.
