Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson has said that militant group, Niger Delta Avengers is scaring foreign investors away from the region.

Dickson made the comment via a statement released by his media aide, Daniel Iworiso-Markson on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, Punch reports.

The statement reads:

“The unfortunate development is scaring foreign investors away from investing in the country. The recent development is affecting the socio-economic growth of not only the state, but the entire region.

“May I therefore call on stakeholders to discuss the way forward to nip in the bud, the unwarranted and incessant destruction of critical national assets. The way forward is for all stakeholders to discuss the issues and the need for the Federal Government to tread with caution and not adopt military approach as a means of solving the problem.

“No one person can protect the assets in the remote areas of the region. I, therefore, call on those involved in this act of criminality and brigandage to stop forthwith. We also commend the military and other security organs in their fight against pipeline vandalism and the protection of lives and property in the region.”

Meanwhile, the Niger Delta Avengers have carried out another attack on a Chevron facility in the region.
