‘Stay away from Urhobo land’
Meanwhile, the National Leader of Urhobo Nationality Council (UNC), Olorogun Jaro Egbo, has asked the Niger Delta Avengers to keep away from Urhobo land, saying the ethnic group would not sit and watch people from other nationalities vandalize national assets on its territory for private reasons.

Olorogun Egbo stated: “Our position is that we shall not allow our territories to be used as launching pads for criminal elements out to destroy our national assets.

“We advise anybody, who has issues with the security agencies bordering on criminal breach of trust and financial misfeasance, to summon the courage to face the charges, rather than plunging innocent inhabitants of the riverine communities into untold hardship.”
