The kinsmen of ex-militant leader, Tompolo, have called on the Niger Delta Avengers to stop bombing pipelines and embrace dialogue.

The Gbaramatu Communities Chairmen Forum made the call in an open letter to President Buhari.

The chairmen also pleaded with the President to order the commencement of work on the proposed Export Processing Zone, EPZ/Gas Revolution Industrial Park and Gbaramatu Seaport.

Vanguard reports that the spokesman of the group, Demebi Johnbull (Oporoza) in a signed statement, said Buhari should “engage the traditional institution of Gbaramatu kingdom on issues concerning peace and development, and also kindly direct the Military High Command to respect our traditional institution by returning the items looted during the recent military invasion of Gbaramatu kingdom."

Johnbull also said “The Niger Delta Avengers and other agitating groups should sheathe their swords to engender the peaceful resolution of the logjam as no development can be achieved in a rancorous environment.

 “We affirm that we are ready and willing to cooperate and collaborate with the federal government to bring an enduring solution to the incessant pipelines vandalism an insurgency in the kingdom.

“We assure you of our unalloyed support to ensure that your administration records sterling achievements, anchored on your administration’s show of sincerity in dealing with the people and adopt participatory governance in which democracy is rooted to give the people a sense of belonging.”

The chairmen also called on Mr. President to ask the multinational corporations operating in their kingdom to take care of the environment and engage in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Tompolo  begged President Buhari to ask the military officers that allegedly invaded Gbaramatu kingdom to return his symbol of authority as the Chief Priest of Egbesu shrine.
