A former leader of the Niger Delta Vigilante, Ateke Tom, has called on the Federal Government to prosecute anyone found guilty of destroying oil facilities in the Niger Delta.

Ateke also said the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) are causing the people in the region more harm than good.

The ex-militant leader in a statement said “Ateke Tom condemns in totality the activities of the faceless and masked group called the Niger Delta Avengers. The group is causing more harm to the people of the region than good.

“Security agencies should fish out the criminals and prosecute them in line with the law if they refuse to lay down their arms and unmask themselves. The government should embrace dialogue with repentant agitators and make them state the reasons for their actions.

“Government should also use diplomacy in handling the issues of the Niger Delta so that it will not affect the innocent. By bombing and destroying our oil installations and government property situated in the region, they (bombers) are only exposing children and unborn children to serious hardship in the near future.”

The Niger Delta Avengers have vowed to continue bombing offshore facilities if their demands are not met by the Federal Government.
