Come to Niger Delta by yourself – Militants tell Buhari

They also warned Buhari not to enter into any deal with sycophants who only want to propagate their interests.

The militants also accused the President of treating members of the Boko Haram sect like kings and queens.

The militants’spokesman, Mudoch Agbimbo said "You cannot treat the Niger Delta region with disdain while you treat your brothers that are terrorists and kidnappers (Boko Haram) like kings and queens by committing the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement from Geneva to witness your transaction with them before they released their hostages to you.

“We are disposed to dialogue but we want Mr. President to come down and negotiate with us rather than using his political aides who are sycophants and will be feeding him with wrong information. We will not take such from Mr. President; we want him to interface with us as a way to providing a lasting solution to the Niger-Delta crisis; we will not interface with political sycophants.”

This is coming after the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM) threatened to blow up more crude oil facilities in the Niger Delta.
