Dislodged militants in Isawo, Igbo Olomu and Arepo, Ibafo and Awawa creeks in Lagos and Ogun locations are reportedly finding its way back
The Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), on Saturday, said reports at its disposal revealed that the fear of return of the militants expressed by the residents was justified.
This came as the Nigerian Air Force continued its onslaught against the militants.
“We are collaborating with the police and other security agencies, ‘’ Odua People’s Congress has said.
“From our reports, we gathered that the militants are into this heinous crime because they cannot siphon petrol since the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has stopped supplying the product through the Atlas Cove.”
“We found out that these men are not the real Niger Delta militants. They are the Ijaws from Ondo State, who came to Arepo and other communities to vandalize petroleum pipelines and steal fuel.
“We have held a meeting of the National Coordinating Council of OPC where we analysed how they are sneaking into the homes of some of their people in the area,”.
The OPC Coordinator, Ganiyu Adams disclosed that the group decided to complement the air raids of the military by ensuring that whoever escapes from the creek is not allowed into the communities.
