The British Foreign Minister, Philip Hammond, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari against tackling the Niger Delta Avengers with the Army.

According to Daily Trust, Hammond said this while speaking with journalists in Abuja, saying the move could end in disaster.

In his words, “It’s obviously a major concern. The idea that your answer is by moving big chunks of the Nigerian army to the Delta simply doesn’t work, “It won’t deal with the underlying issues.

Continuing, he said, 'Buhari has got to show as a president from the north that he is not ignoring the Delta, that he is engaging with the challenges in the Delta.'

This is coming just after the Nigerian Army had resolved to deal with the Niger Delta Avengers for their dastardly acts that include the killing of some military personnels and damaging oil failities.
