Leader of a militant group, Bakassi Strike Force BSF, Benjamin Simply, also known as General Simply or G1 has said that he and his fighters will lay down their arms if the Federal Government can evolve an acceptable way of resettling the people of Bakassi who were displaced by the ceding of their land to Cameroon by Nigeria.

In a recorded video message which was obtained by Saharareporters, the armed group which has come under intensive assault by the military, claim that the inability of the FG to resettle the displaced persons properly is what has forced them to take up arms and that they have never been involved in sabotaging any federal government assets.

The military however has maintained that the group is a criminal gang that is involved in crude oil theft, kidnapping for ransom and armed robbery.
