Niger Delta militants are not ordinary Nigerians – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has observed that those blowing up oil installations in the Niger Delta region are not ordinary Nigerians.

Buhari explained that the sophistication the vandals employed in blowing up oil pipelines was an indication that they were experts in the field.

He stated this after his investiture as the Grand Patron of the Nigerian Academy of Engineering, NAE, led by its President, Joana Maduka, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday.

The President noted that a situation where vandals go deep into the sea for almost 70 kilometers to destroy pipelines with ease, suggested they were professionals.

According to Buhari, “How can ordinary Nigerians go into the deep sea almost 70 kilometers to blow installations, they are not ordinary Nigerians. So you have to talk to your members.”
