Em­brace peace, not war, Guru urges Niger Delta mil­i­tants

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Dele Ogun­yemi, Ibadan

The spir­i­tual leader of the One Love Fam­ily, Sat Guru Ma­haraj Ji, has pleaded with the Niger Delta Avengers and other mil­i­tant groups in the Niger Delta re­gion to em­brace peace and not war in their agi­ta­tion for jus­tice and eq­uity in the na­tion.

In a signed state­ment made avail­able to jour­nal­ists in Ibadan yes­ter­day, Sat Guru Ma­haraj Ji called for a stop to the bomb­ings of oil and gas pipe­lines in the Niger Delta re­gion.

He said, “There is ur­gent need for the Avengers in the Niger Delta to go to the ne­go­ti­at­ing ta­ble to present their griev­ances for a peace­ful res­o­lu­tion of the un­nec­es­sary lin­ger­ing cri­sis. We can­not quench fire with fire and it does not mat­ter how long it takes, di­a­logue is what we re­quire to re­duce ten­sion, pain and agony now on the rise with fel­low Nige­ri­ans. The coun­try has the best of ev­ery­thing to give com­fort and se­cu­rity to all if we ap­pre­ci­ate one an­other.”
