...His freedom key to peace —Militant leaders

champion newspapers "LEADERS of four dreaded militant groups in Niger Delta region have called on the federal government to release the detained leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Mr. Henry Okah, to facilitate the peace move in the region.

This is just as two top militants in Bayelsa State, Commander Lagosman Jackson and General Africa Ukparasia, declared readiness to surrender their arms and embrace the amnesty offered by President Umaru Yar’Ádua, few hours after the president listed conditions for benefiting from the amnesty."
