An Ijaw group, Eye of Niger Delta (END) at the weekend set up taskforce committee to investigative the recent attack on oil pipeline in Delta State and to assist the Federal government   fish out the perpetrators of the crime.

 

 

 

The group said the need to arrest the perpetrators of the crime became necessary following the consequence of the attack on the health of innocent people in the communities where the attacks were carried out.

 

 The Leader of the group, Comrade Tari Victor Ben made this declaration in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital while charging members of the committee set –up by his organization to discharge their duty responsibly.

 

Condemning attacks on oil facilities in Niger Delta region, Tari said he has already vowed to expose those who he described as the enemies of peace in Niger Delta region, adding the youths of the region must do everything possible to maintainpeace in the region.

   

He called on community leaders and youth groups in the Niger Delta region to shun any temptation to be drawn into nefarious activities which he believes will jeopardize the on-going federal government intervention.

 

He advised the security agencies to intensify their surveillance on oil facilities. He  pledged the commitment of his organization to support all measures that would restore the confidence of all stakeholders in the operation of oil and gas in Niger Delta region.

 

Tari said: “We strongly condemn the act recently carried out by some unknown criminal who derive joy in destroying oil pipelines in the region causing tension and exposing the innocent women and children of the communities to danger. We must arrest them.

 

“At the same time we are warning our youths not to be part of this crime, we don’t want them to listen to any leader or politician who would want to use them to achieve his personal gain. Attack on oil facilities is purely criminal, ungodly and we reject attempts to destroy peace in the region.”
