Military Readies Major Offensive Against N’Delta Militants if Talks Fail



Baring any major progress in the ongoing dialogue between the federal government and stakeholders in the Niger Delta to end the attacks on oil and gas installations, the Nigerian military is in process of wrapping up plans to launch a major offensive against the militants sabotaging facilities in the oil-rich region.

Despite the attempt at a détente, reliable sources informed THISDAY that the federal government was losing patience with the militants whose activities have disrupted oil and gas output and in turn revenue accruable to the government.
It was on this basis that the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, met with the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonishakin, and other top brass in the military last Thursday and appealed for their assistance in securing and safeguarding oil and gas assets in the region.
