The Iduwini Volunteer Force (IVF) has raised the alarm over attempt by some people to cause public disorder and serious threat to security in the Niger Delta.

In a letter dated September 9, 2016, signed by Commander Johnson Biboye on behalf of IVF and addressed to Major Gen. Babagana Monguno (Rtd), the National Security Adviser (NSA), IVF said the persons and group have been parading themselves as leaders of oil and gas producing communities in the Niger Delta.

It implored the NSA to use his good offices to call the persons to order and put a permanent hold on the purported meeting.

It  stated that as a front-line freedom fighting group in the Niger Delta that has been involved in the peace process,  only the Host Communities of Nigeria (HOSCON) has keyed into the peace process of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in the Niger Delta and in an effort to ensure that peace and tranquility reign supreme in the oil rich region.

“We have sadly discovered that the aforementioned persons under the leadership of one Chief Alfred Macaraba Bubor have directly and indirectly created a lot of crisis and mayhem because of their selfish desire to ensure that the Niger Delta crisis is not resolved amicably.

“We have discovered a well-orchestrated plot by this same group to hold a meeting on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at No. 11 Uti Street, off PTI Road, Effurun, Delta State.

“From our findings, the said meeting has its agenda, plans to blackmail security forces, HOSCON leadership led by King Alfred Diete-Spiff for daring to advocate for peace in the Niger Delta without their selfish interest.

“The meeting will among other things castigate the security handling of the Niger Delta crisis and possibly use the same medium to run down the newly appointed member Board of Trustee of the Ogoni Clean-up Committee who coincidentally is the National Chairman of HOSCON in the person of Prince Mike Emuh.

“We are also aware that plans are at advance stage to recruit hooligans/miscreants to use the meeting as a launching pad to ferment new trouble within the Niger Delta Region. We cannot afford to go through another round of crisis in the Niger Delta Region particularly in Warri, because of selfish interest of some few individuals,” the group said in the petition.
