The warning came on the heels of the weekend bombing of oil facilities belonging to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Delta State by suspected members of the Greenland Justice Mandate.

The Navy, which stated that it was closing in on the suspects restated its determination to rid the Niger Delta region of militants by ensuring that the suspected bombers were arrested and brought to book.

According to him, the recent bombings in some parts of the region were part of attempts by some miscreants to bring disaffection between the various communities in the Niger Delta and government,

He expressed optimism that the military was now more ready to deal with all forms of illegalities that would affect peace in the Niger Delta region.

“We require the support of the communities to provide us with information because they know these hoodlums. They should give us the information and we will go after them and this time whoever comes with any type of illegality will have himself to blame.”
