Chairman of Niger Delta Nationalities Forum  -NDNFL, Mr. Seigha Manager, has raised the alarm over plans by some aggrieved Niger Delta youths to resume destruction of oil installation in the region.

He told Daily Sun that, from his contact with his people in the Niger Delta, he discovered that there are plans to damage oil facilities in the region. He also alleged that the plans are being hatched by those who believe the Federal Government was deceiving them.

“I am calling on the attention of the acting President, the National Security Adviser, the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representative that there are indications that some Niger Delta youths, who feel that the Federal Government is deceiving them, have a big plan to cause serious damage to the oil installations in the region.

“They are linking it to the fact that the N35billion virement the President sent to the National Assembly in October 2016 which has been approved has not been paid.

“The boys are saying the virement has been approved and that they are getting encouragement from some places that except they do something the money will not be released.”

He urged those in authority to release funds so that militants would not have to go back to the era of pipeline destruction. He described the situation as real and added that the treat “is real”

Manager commends Acting President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo’s efforts in “visiting almost all the States in the Niger Delta and said “It was the first time such a high powered government official embarked on such a visit to the region.
