We Won’t Surrender, John Togo’s Men Dare Fg by loverob: 6:07am On Nov 22, 2010
Aggrieved ex-militants under the aegis of the Niger-Delta Liberation Force, NDLF, led by “General” John Togo in Delta State remained recalcitrant yesterday, saying they would not surrender.

Spokesman of the group, “Captain” Mark Anthony told Daily Sun that the group would not surrender until the Federal Government convened a conference of aggrieved ex-militants to discuss their grievances with the post-amnesty programme.

His words, “We are not surrendering, we are waiting for more troops, until government calls for a dialogue to address grey areas with aggrieved ex-militants, the battle is not over, we will continue.”

He said it was wrong for the Federal Government and the JTF to address them as criminals when they heard the point clearly that they were not criminals, but ex-militants fighting for their rights. Anthony added. “We want Mr. President to apologize to us for calling us criminals, those on whose backs he climbed to power.

He is the highest beneficiary of our armed struggle in the Niger-Delta. We’re not criminals but freedom fighters.”
Meanwhile, the barricade on the waterways of Delta State by the JTF continued yesterday with reports that there were restriction of movements in the Bomadi, Burutu, Okwagbe axis. He said only the Warri end to Gbaramatu kingdom was spared.

But residents of Ogodobri and other communities who fled their communities for fear of reprisal attack by the JTF following last Wednesday’s gun battle between soldiers and NDLF fighters at Ayakuromo militant camp of John Togo, have started returning home. The Councillor representing Ogodobri in the Bomadi Local Government, Hon. Geofrey Dibofa commended the JTF on their activities in the area.

President of the Concerned People Forum of Ogodobri community, Pastor Felix Okpe also praised President Goodluck Jonathan for carefully monitoring the taskforce and ensuring that they did not descend on innocent communities. Dibofa said, “Presently, the situation is under control, the good people of Ogodobri do not deserve the punishment they gave us in the past just because of John Togo.
