Ondo Ex-Militants Make Demands For Pipeline Surveillance Contract From Tinubu

by Victor Ndubuisi

Ondo State’s former Niger Delta militants have asked with President Bola Tinubu to decentralise the pipeline monitoring contract so that group members can cover the littoral corridors of Ondo, Ogun, and Lagos States.

According to, the group made the demand in a letter to the president that was sent under the banner of the Niger Delta Coastline Vanguard (NDCV) and was signed by the group’s national president, national secretary, and public relations officer, respectively, Akogun Job, Ajiroba Lucky, and Omoyele Ishola.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Cooperation Limited (NNPCL) plans to reaward the pipeline surveillance contracts to some ex-military leaders in the region to carry out security and monitor pipelines against vandals, according to the NDCV, which is made up of ex-militants who, under the presidential amnesty programme, submitted weapons and were granted a pardon in 2017.

The government had pledged to appropriately incorporate them into the Federal Government amnesty programme with all accumulated perks, the ex-militants said.


The letter read, “We are aware of the serious implication the neglect of this agitation could cause to the region, More so, when the contract is awarded to a person who is not too familiar with the region. We are also very much comfortable with the tremendous peace being enjoyed at the moment, and we want it to continue.

“On this note, we demand decentralisation of the pipeline surveillance contract to accommodate NDCV to cover Ondo, Ogun and Lagos States littoral corridors. The NDCV has the capacity, the required intelligence, and human resources to collaborate with the Federal Government in the surveillance of pipeline and anti-bunkering activities in the area.

“The NDCV is familiar with the terrain for effective and efficient output and we shall not allow or accept any deliberate attempt by government or agent of government to impose someone from another region who does not belong to our ethnic nationality on us to sustain the existing peace in the region.”
