The group said its 400 members from five different camps would use the opportunity created by the Second Phase of Amnesty programme of Federal Government to surrender their arms.

“We humbly want to appeal to Nigerian Armed Forces and other security agents not to compromise standard in the coming Amnesty programme scheduled for Nov. 9, 2017 in Ondo State.

“During the first phase of the Amnesty in 2009, Gen. Deji Ehinmowo, leader of United Sea Wolf Avengers, was served a letter dated July 16, 2009 with reference number NOA/OD/AW/02 by the Federal Government on the need for his camp to embrace Amnesty.

“He then insisted that using Amnesty proclamation as avenue to purchase arms for the political thugs will not be accepted.
