OPC Warns Militants Over Quit Notice Issued On Yorubas In Niger Delta

The National Coordinator of Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Gani Adams has urged the Niger Delta leaders to call militants in their region to order over the quit notice issued to the Yorubas.

According to him, the quit notice could affect the great relationship enjoyed by the Southwest and South-south. Adams said, “We know that the position of the militants may not reflect that of their leaders. There is a need for them to speak out against the move of the group.”

He also reminded the militants that, “there are more indigenes of the South-south in the south-west”,  and demanded that “Yorubas must be safe in the Niger Delta”.

“We see the Southerners as friends but we are not in any way comfortable with the threat to quit. The clamp down may have an ill effect of further threat against our people in the Niger Delta region”, Adams reiterated.

Militants under the auspices of Niger Delta Agitators (NDA) had ordered Yorubas and the Hausas residing in the South-south to vacate the region before October 1.
