Ex-militant leader, Preye Ekpebide, has warned Boko Haram insurgents to limit their operations to the North-East part of the country, as they were not welcomed to the Niger Delta, so as not to provoke the wrath of the former fighters.
Ekpebide said that the ex-militants had watched with dismay and were keenly strategising to ensure that the bombings and killings taking place in the North do not happen in the South-South.
He spoke in Bomadi, Delta State, while reacting to Monday’s Abuja motor park bombing, which claimed over 70 lives. He called on President Goodluck Jonathan to apply maximum force and declare war on the Islamic sect.
He noted that to stamp out the Boko Haram sect from Abuja and the three North-eastern states, the Federal Government needs to fight them from their root in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa, before it escalates to a national calamity.
