Ex Militant Gen. Africa apprehends militants who killed Soldiers in Bayelsa


Ex-militant Leader, General Africanus Ukparasia, has claimed that he has apprehended and handed over to security forces the gang of criminals who attacked and killed three soldiers at Tombi Waterside in Nembe, Bayelsa State earlier  in August.
Africa who was recently appointed as Chairman, Bayelsa State Waterways Security Task Force, disclosed this through a  statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.
The statement revealed that Gen. Africa who has been working behind the scenes to halt pipeline vandalism in Bayelsa State for some months now, has renewed his warning to criminals to desist from their acts of criminality or leave Bayelsa State, as according to him, there would be no more room for criminals in the state as his Task Force shall take the battle to them.
He promise to work with security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of the heinous crime, matched with action when his Task Force apprehended and handed over the criminals who attacked and killed the soldiers without any provocation.
He warned pipeline vandals and other criminals not to test his Task Force resolve as they would go after anybody or group that make such attempt.
The Ex-militant advised Bayelsans and community leaders to report any act of criminality in their areas for prompt action.
He also  advised the youths of Bayelsa state not to bring bad reputation to the state and the country by getting involved in crimes such as pipeline vandalism, kidnapping and sea piracy. He expressed optimism that the President Buhari administration will develop the Niger Delta and urged all to support his government.
The ex-militant leader who is known for his vocal stance against pipeline vandalism, sea piracy, kidnapping and other sundry crimes in Bayelsa State and the Niger Delta region, warned militants and miscreants to steer clear of the national, state and private assets located in the state because according to him, criminals would no longer go about committing crimes unchallenged.
It would be recalled that since Gen. Africa started working behind the scenes in Bayelsa State, the issue of pipeline bombings have reduced to the barest minimum.
