“Nobody has the monopoly of violence. We are not violent people, we are very educated people, we are very smart, and we are very courageous people.

“We are ready to work with him, to also make sure that we protect the pipelines that run through Edo State and all through the Niger Delta region.

” I see this thing as a welfare system where you know that some ethnic groups have suffered a lot, you know they are unemployed, you want to release money so that every one of them can enjoy the national cake, and stop the destruction.

The whole people of the Niger delta need to benefit from Mr government tombolo FG’s awarded surveillance contract, so that, everyone from their region and areas in the Niger delta can also protect the oil wells and the oil pipelines in their places. It is going to create jobs for our teeming youths whom the government has neglected, unemployed, and who have been suffering to earn a living and care for their aged parents and care for their families.

“But I do not support violence, I do not support destruction, but I won’t hesitate to tell the government that we cannot be discriminated against, one section will not be encouraged, including others neglected
