Ex-militant disowns threat against ShellHeadlines, Niger Delta Tuesday, July 24th, 2012
An ex-militant leader and President of the Leadership Forum for Peace in Niger Delta, Pastor Reuben, has distanced himself from the threat of some ex-militants to unleash violence on the Shell Petroleum Development Company if it fails to quickly recall Mr. David Alabrah, whose employment was terminated by the company in March.
Reuben, in a statement in Yenagoa on Monday, denied knowledge of the threat, regretting that his name was used by others to warn Shell.
He said he had no acquaintance with the sacked Alabrah and was not in any position to plead on his behalf or compel Shell to reinstate him.
He reinstated his commitment to the peace in the Niger Delta region and said he would continue to adhere to the principles of amnesty he received from the Federal Government.
He said, “I wish to categorically state that I knew nothing about the purported press statement; neither did I endorse or authorise the use of my name on the statement.”
