Ex-militants seek Toru-ebe State
Niger Delta ex-militants have called on President Jonathan to support the creation of Toru-Ebe State.
Delta State Chairman, Amnesty Phase 2, Gen. Kingsley Muturu,
stressed the need for Jonathan to address the long-standing issue of Toru-ebe State, which will unite the balkanised Ijaws in Delta, Edo and Ondo states.
They said: “All we are saying is that Toru-ebe State creation is one thing we agitators have been fighting in order to unite our balkanized people. It is our home and we are calling on President Jonathan to look at this issue critically in the Confab report. He should not ignore it if we are creating additional states in this federation.
“Jonathan should revoke all oil licences because they were allotted by people for themselves without following due process. He should revoke and re-allot them according to due process with Niger Deltans at heart, because we suffer all the degradations and pollution in the area.”
