    Ammon Bundy, center, speaks with a reporter at a news conference at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Friday, Jan. 8, 2016, near Burns, Ore. Bundy, the leader of an armed group occupying the national wildlife refuge to protest federal land management policies, said Friday he and his followers are not ready to leave even though the sheriff and many locals say the group has overstayed their welcome.

    Lawyers for Ammon Bundy, the leader of the armed occupation at an Oregon wildlife refuge, say they have recored his voice urging supporters to disband and leave, NBC News reported.

    Since his arrest on Tuesday, Bundy has urged supporters to go home. His attorneys say the remaining four occupiers are skeptical that the previous calls have, in fact, come from Bundy.

    Bundy was arrested with other members of the group on Tuesday. Another member was fatally shot by police during the arrests on a highway.

    A federal judge refused to grant Bundy or his brother, Ryan, bail, saying she considered them a flight risk and a danger to the community.
