N320m Hijack: Niger Delta Ex-militants Drops Threats to Shutdown Utorogu Gas Plant

…Say anger came on hearing about hijack of N320m by few Ex-militants.

The Chairmen of the Delta and Edo States Phase 2 Ex-militants of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, PAP, has reversed its threat to shutdown Utorogu Gas Plant in Otu-Keremi, Ughelli South local government area of Delta state.

The Ex-militants said the threat to shutdown Utorogu Gas Plant came on hearing that some persons had hijacked N320m meant for Niger Delta Ex-militants Phase 2, hence the call on President Bola Tinubu, the Interim Administrator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, PAP, Maj-Gen Barry Ndiomu (retd) and Security Agents to go after those behind the alleged hijack.

The Phase 2 Ex-militants said its earlier threat to shutdown the Utorogu Gas Plant was because nobody owned up to the hijack of the N320m, until some persons openly countered a publication they published without their names not being mentioned but reacted out out of guilty conscience.

Speaking to newsmen in Warri, the Delta State Chairman, Gen. Solomon Adu, Edo State Chairman, Gen. London Gbuke and Gen Julius Belemu from Bayelsa said the N320m alleged to have been hijacked by few ex militants is meant for the entire phase 2 Ex-militants in the Niger Delta region, stating that they are not fighting for themselves but for the entire region.

They said, “How would they say their attention was drawn to a publication by some self appointed Chairmen of the Phase 2 Ex-Agitators from Delta, Edo and Bayelsa states, alleging some persons of hijacking N320m, without mentioning their name, but yet rushed to counter our publication, is that not laughable.

“It is shocking to respond to a publication your name was not mentioned and allegations you know nothing about, your names not mentioned, we only petitioned President Tinubu and others over the hijack of N320m, and they started issuing press statements, calling for an arrest for fighting a just course.

“It is therefore laughable that some person who had hijacked N320m meant for the entire Niger Delta Phase 2 Ex-militants are coming out to show their faces that they are behind the hijack of the N320 even when none of their names were mentioned in the publication.

“You are urging the security agents not to treat the threat of shutting down Utorogu Gas Plant by Delta, Edo and Bayelsa states, Gen. Solomon Adu, Gen. London Gbuke and Gen. Julius Belemu with kid gloves, when your guilts have proved you all out as prime suspects by revealing yourselves through their response to a publication their names was not mentioned.
