Delta Worst Hit By Militants, Gov. Okowa Says

Delta State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that Delta State is the worst hit by present activities of the Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, and other militants.
Okowa stated this when he hosted the Commander of Operation Delta Safe, Rear Admiral Joseph Okojie, who led top officers of the multi-service task force to pay him a courtesy call in Asaba.
He prayed that pipeline bombings by militants would stop to enable the state “maintain its oil production without breaches as our revenue has dropped drastically.”

The governor, who also acknowledged the adverse effect of the attacks on revenue accruing to the Federation Accounts, told the commander that the best way to tackle security issues in the Niger Delta was by sharing of intelligence and combination of personnel to achieve desired results.
