A new militant group, the Niger Delta Warriors, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal.
It also called for the removal of the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
NDW warned that if the duo remained in office after 14 days, youths in the Niger Delta would embark on mass protests in major cities nationwide.
A statement on Saturday by its spokesperson, General Hart Bradford, stated that NDW gave the ultimatum after a careful study of the ongoing war against corruption.
Bradford said, “We are giving the President 14 days ultimatum to sack the SGF and the EFCC chairman, otherwise we shall have no option than to carry out mass protest in Abuja and other cities across the country until the SGF and EFCC chairman leave office.”
Bradford also warned the FG to stop denigrating the family of former President Goodluck Jonathan, noting that the probe of Mrs. Jonathan was political.
He advised government not to be selective in the ongoing fight against corruption, adding that several corrupt personalities were in the President’s cabinet.
Bradford also called for the reinstatement of the sacked six policemen, who were aides to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
“We are in support of the President’s anti-corruption campaign, but the campaign should be carried out without sentiment or witch-hunt against a particular set of people or party,” he added.
