Niger Delta Avengers threaten further attacks; warn ex-militants against meddling

Niger Delta Avengers, a faceless group of militant agitators in Nigeria’s South-south region have threatened to resume hostilities after a ceasefire agreement facilitated by stakeholders in the region.

In a release made available to YNaija today, the group’s spokesperson, Col. Mudoch Agbinibo, denied involvement in the Agip pipeline bombing on Saturday, May 21, 2016, but threatened to resume attacks.

According to the group: “An illustrious Ijaw son of the Niger Delta facilitated the 14 day cessation of hostilities between the Niger Delta Avengers and the federal government. It is however pertinent to note that he too has been betrayed as his contact with the federal government stopped midway and flew out of the country… We have lost faith in the federal government’s ability to deal with the people of the Niger Delta. The federal government and the rest of Nigeria shall witness the unfolding of our plans.”

Read the full statement below:

Let it be known that the Niger Delta Avengers are not criminals or oil thieves. We are simply concerned activists of the Niger Delta Republic. The High Command of the Niger Delta Avengers want to thank all our commanders for the 14 day cessation of hostilities in the Niger Delta.
 
We hereby distance ourselves from an act of vandalism that was not carried out by us that occurred during the 14 day cessation, notably the Agip (NAOC) pipeline that was blown in Bayelsa state in the early hours on Saturday May 21, 2016. This bombing was not carried out by the Niger Delta Avengers.
 
An illustrious Ijaw son of the Niger Delta facilitated the 14 day cessation of hostilities between the Niger Delta Avengers and the federal government. It is however pertinent to note that he too has been betrayed as his contact with the federal government stopped midway and flew out of the country.
 
Once again it is important to note that the Niger Delta Avengers are well read and well traveled and there is no place in the world where a negotiator is removed midway through negotiations. We have lost faith in the federal government’s ability to deal with the people of the Niger Delta. The federal government and the rest of Nigeria shall witness the unfolding of our plans.
 
To our elder brothers (ex-agitators) not in support of our movement, we warn that you stay clear or we will crash you as we know you but you do not know us.”
