Warlords Meet in Abuja: Yoruba Warlord Obasanjo Makes Truce with Ijaw Reistance Leader, Dokubo
A militia leader from BiafraNigeria's main oil region says he has agreed a truce with the country's president, although officials did not confirm the report. Mujahid Dokubo Asari had threatened foreign workers and the threat was seen as one reason why world oil prices hit record highs of $50 a barrel this week. He says he is fighting for Ijaw people's rights in the Niger Delta but officials dismiss him as an oil thief. Mr Asari said more talks were scheduled for Thursday. Mr Asari said he and five other colleagues had met President Olusegun Obasanjo and other government officials at the state house and been reassured of the government's peaceful intentions. "The president has given a firm assurance that no attacks will be carried out against our positions and we too have undertaken not to attack the military," Mr Asari told the BBC's Focus on Africa programme. He refused to disarm until his key demands of self-determination and control of resources were discussed. "We will call for the surrender of weapons when the fundamental issues are put up for discussion." Speaking to the AFP news agency, he specified that he and the president had "reached a temporary arrangement, not a ceasefire". (BBC)
