Lawyer seeks strong military action again Niger Delta Avengers

A former Chairman of the Nigeria Bar Association ( NBA ) in Sokoto State, Mustapha Abubakar, has advised the Federal Government to adopt stringent security measures to curb the increasing menace of Niger Delta Avengers.

Abubakar said in an interview yesterday in Sokoto that the group’s activities pose serious threat to Nigeria’s corporate existence.
He advised President Muhammadu Buhari to adopt the same security measures taken against cattle rustlers and insurgents in dealing with the militants.

He noted that the ongoing fight against cattle rustling and insurgency in North East and some parts of North West have made it possible for residents to feel safe.

Abubakar urged Nigerians to support President Buhari’s efforts in the fight against corruption and kidnappings by exposing all those involved in the act.

He said it was only by so doing that Nigerians would move on with their legitimate businesses in peace and harmony.
Abubakar also called for active participation of communities to rid the society of miscreants and criminals, adding that such support would encourage security agencies to deal with criminals and ensure peaceful coexistence.
