Ateke Tom Denies Issuing Ultimatum To Buhari Over Biafra


Former Niger Delta agitator, High Chief Ateke Tom, has denied giving the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government 14 days ultimatum to grant Biafra freedom or face fresh agitation in the oil rich Niger Delta.

Speaking through his spokesman, Ifeanyi Ogbonna, Tom denied the allegation, stressing that he did not give the Federal Government any deadline.

He warned members of the public to desist from using his pictures for unauthorized media reports.

Ogbonna said that Ateke had never had a meeting with the leadership of IPOB or MASSOB and had never in any way threatened to declare war against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government. He said Ateke, who is now the Leader of Niger Delta Vigilante, NDV, has no time for such talk and has nothing to do with Biafra.

The ex-militant urged Nigerians to be patient with the Buhari-led government and support him, adding that Buhari is a good leader and a peace lover.
