Ex-militant, Tom Ateke has warned Pro-Biafra agitators to stay clear of Rivers State.

The leader of Niger Delta Vigilante, NDV, who spoke through his media aide, Ifeanyi Ogbonna said it was worrisome that the Biafra agitators were using the state to propagate their protests.

In his words, "Biafra agitators should leave Rivers State alone. I am a law abiding citizen of the Federal Republic of this great country Nigeria. I have always prayed for peace in the country. So people should stop using my name and pictures for business gains.

Continuing, he said, 'Governor Nyesom Wike is God fearing and peace loving man and he has the interest of the people at heart. I advice the local government authorities to work with the governor in order to rid our communities of crime.

'The whole country is not stable now. The security situation even in other states is very bad and so if you check it you will see that our state, Rivers State, is very peaceful for now. The state is peaceful so people should stop using the state as head line news to fight for political gains,' he said.

This is coming after reports that Ateke has thrown his heavy weight behind the Biafra agitators in their move for secession.
