Military to flush them out
Militants flushed out by security forces from creeks in Lagos and Ogun States are gradually returning to the areas.
Chairman of the operation Awatse, Rear Admiral Ferguson Bobai, said the military was aware of their new hideouts, and would soon embark on an aggressive patrol of the creeks to flush them out again.
Bobai stated this during the evacuation of Petrol Jerry can abandoned by the militants from the waterway by the Lagos state emergency management agency,
The naval general said the creeks need to be secured urgently, as NNPC would soon resume the pumping of petroleum products through pipeline from the atlas cove jetty in Lagos to the NNPC Mosinmi depot in Sagamu.
He said the main operational base of the Returning Militants is Ijedodo in Lagos State, after their forceful ejection from creeks in Ogun and other parts of Lagos State.
