Hundreds of Niger Delta ex-militants in Bomadi, Delta State on Thursday gave the Federal Government a 10-day ultimatum to return the arms taken from them.

The ex-militants stated that after several peaceful efforts to make the government see reasons why they should be included its the amnesty programme had failed, they were left with no option but to return to the creeks.

They accused the government through the Joint Military Task Force of deceiving them into submitting their arms, adding that several efforts to ‘’negotiate’’ with the Niger Delta Ministry had been fruitless.

While addressing the media, the ex-militants led by ‘General’ Para Ekiyes, Chairman of the state branch of the amnesty phase three displayed various certificates issued them by the army during their disarmament.

They had at different times barricaded the busy East-West road linking the South-West with Bayelsa, Rivers, Cross River and Imo states to draw government’s attention to their plight.

But the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Mr. Kingsley Kuku, had at various times said their protests were illegitimate, adding that they embraced the amnesty programme after the window had closed.

The ex-militants, who observed a one-minute silence in honour of the Late President Musa Yar’Adua, also demanded the immediate exit of all oil companies operating in the Niger Delta within 10 days or face the “consequences.”

They said, “President Goodluck Jonathan and Kinsley Kuku know what we can do because they are from here. We were with Kuku in the creeks during the heady days of militancy. He knows what we can do.

A militant group in Niger Delta, Joint Revolutionary Council, JRC, has threatened to kill all Muslims living in Niger Delta States as retaliation to the series of bombing and killing of southerners in the North by members of the Boko Haram Sect.

The group issued the threat today in a statement sent to Pointblanknews.com warning that there will be no going back on its decision.

Only yesterday, a bomb blast killed 14 persons and injured several others at Ogbomoso, by Katsina Road, Kaduna, Kaduna State, Northwest Nigeria. The bomb blast, according to witnesses was carried out by two suspected bombers alleged to be members of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram.

 â€œThe continuous killings of Christians in the North are unbearable to us now. Boko Haram has been leaving bombs around churches and other places with clusters of the innocent,” the group said in a statement.

“why all these killings of innocent Niger Deltans? With this trend, we can’t leave together. Leave Niger Delta now!!! Your failure to leave…, we’ll start to kill any MUSLIM WE SEE IN THE NIGER DELTA REGION full stop and no going back,” the group warned in the statement by the Joint Revolutionary Council.

The group said “No section of this country is an embodiment of killing others. Muslims can’t live in our land freely (Niger Delta) while BOKO HARAM will be killing our people in their land. This is our message, If you like stay and test our ultimatum and see what will happen.”

we are fully ready to kill if Muslims test us. What happened in Warri today is minor and we shall continue more if they don’t leave our land. Every Muslim should leave now or BLOOD.”

we have tasted blood war during the days of our agitation for equal right. These Boko Haram live among you and pray in the same mosque. So you can’t claim that you don’t know where the Boko Haram is.”

Every Niger Delta to return home as our message will be implemented without hesitation. And any person or individual that make inflammatory statement against us will be dealt with.”
