    A suspected militant, Jones Abiri is in trouble with operatives of the Department of State Security Services, (DSS); over the role he allegedly played in the rumoured  plans by the military to overthrow the government of President Muhammed Buhari.
    Tony Opuiyo, DSS spokesman says Abiri, alias Darikoro, is among the suspected militants, kidnappers and terrorists that were arrested at various locations across the country.
    The suspect was arrested on July 21, in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. He is said to be the leader of the Joint Revolutionary Council of the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF).
    DSS says the suspect has been “furthering separatist tendencies in connivance with other criminal gangs in the region”.
    His words:  Darikoro operates under nickname “general-kill and bury”, and has confessed, owning up to some criminal activities allegedly committed by the JNDLF.
    Some of the allegations labeled against the suspect are vandalism of Nigeria Agip Oil Company (NAOC) trunk line in Ogboinbiri, southern Ijaw local government area of Delta state.
    Darikoro is also linked with the bombing of oil pipeline belonging to Shell Development Company (SPDC) at Brass Creek. The incident occurred on July 8, 2016
    The statements of DSS:  “The suspect sent threat messages to the management of NAOC and SPDC demanding for  payment of N500million and N250million respectively.

    He also threatened to launch missile attacks against selected targets in Abuja including the presidential villa, Aso Rock, the Nigerian secret police further disclosed.
