18 December, 2011, Sweetcrude, WARRI- NIGER-DELTA People Salvation Front, NDPSF, led by Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, weekend, said it would respond appropriately if it is found that any person(s) or group (s) from outside the Niger-Delta region was/were involved in the recent bombing of the main mosque in Sapele, Delta State.

The group in a press statement, signed by its spokesman, Mr. Rex Anighoro, at the end of an emergency meeting of the central committee, also said it had ordered investigation into the incident and placed its men on red alert.

Its words, “We wish to state and make it abundantly clear that we shall respond appropriately should any one person(s) or group(s) of external origin outside the Niger Delta region be found to have orchestrated the attack as we shall not condone any kind of onslaught in the Niger Delta”.

On the removal of fuel subsidy, the group asked President Goodluck Jonathan to forget the idea, saying there was nothing like fuel subsidy in the first instance.

“Fuel subsidy is a criminal tool of the Nigerian government and her international collaborators to defraud the people within the territorial boundaries of the forced union. It is nonexistent and a further dehumanizing, traumatizing and pauperizing of us all, as a conquered people. We state our eternal resistance and opposition to the fraud called fuel subsidy removal”, it added.
