JTF Raises Alarm over Alleged Plot to Attack Shell Facility in N’Delta

From Segun James in Yenagoa, 04.12.2010

The Joint Task Force (JTF) on the Niger Delta, Operation Restore Hope, has raised alarm on plans to attack oil facilities belonging to the Anglo-Dutch oil giant, the Shell Petroleum Development Company.

The JTF in a statement by Lt Col TO Antigha, Coordinator Joint Media Campaing Centre warned those “ behind the plot to abandon the idea immediately in their interest and that of the nation.”

The interventionist agency made it clear that the “declaration of general amnesty and other measures taken by the Federal Government to consolidate the gains of the amnesty programme have not in any way diminished the vast capacity and capability of the JTF as a military outfit.”

The JTF therefore made it clear in the four paragraphs statement that it will visit its military might on those planning the attack, anytime it happens. “Consequently, the JTF warns that it will destroy any group of ex-militants or emerging militants who attempt to sabotage oil and gas installations or dislocate the prevailing peace and tranquillity in the Niger Delta.

“The JTF enjoins all Nigerians and foreigners within and outside the Niger Delta to disregard this threat and continue with their legitimate endeavours. Parents, traditional rulers and well-meaning interest groups are advised to warn their children, subjects and adherents respectively to refrain from tampering with government installations, to enable the Federal Government concentrate on addressing the multi-faceted problems facing the region.”
