Waney, who said he was ready to surrender his arms and ammunition and embrace the amnesty offered by the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, also urged militant groups in the oil rich region, including NDA, to embrace peace and put an end to the destruction of oil facilities.
The militant leader, who is the leader of the Aggrieved Youth Movement said in Aligwu, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area on Monday, that he would fight any militant group that decided to make Rivers its target.
According to the militant leader, “On a strong note, we are non-violent and we shall remain so in our collective agitation for a better ONELGA (Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA), Orashi and Rivers State.
“In the light of this, we call on the Niger Delta Avengers group to leave ONELGA and Orashi region out of their targets.
“We are against the bombing and destruction of vital oil and gas installations in our communities. We shall not allow them or any of their type to enter our land.
“We want peace and development and that is what we have signed with our governor, Nyesom Wike. Rivers State is peaceful and we do not want outsiders to cause crisis and general insecurity in our state again.”
Commending the state governor for offering amnesty to repentant militants, Waney expressed the need for other aggrieved groups to surrender their arms and embrace peace in order to ensure the growth of Niger Delta.
