The Joint Revolutionary Council (JRC)-the highest organ of all Niger Delta Militants-has said it will test six missiles in the Niger Delta region on Tuesday, June 7.
Hence, the militant group has warned all oil companies to stop their operations as the missile testing will affect their equipment.
The JRC is the highest organ of all the freedom fighters – militants.
From their statement – which contained warnings, threats and ultimatums – we learned 7 shocking things.
1. They have 6 missiles
After extensive and exhaustive deliberation by all Commanders of various groups in Yenagoa, the heart of the Niger Delta struggle met last night and as part of our mission, we are going to test six (6) of our MISSILES in the region. This is to show the federal government of our readiness of the American prediction.
2. No fly zone, Nigerian satellite at risk
There should be NO any form of helicopter to fly around in the region as we will not guarantee the safety of such object. We may also decide within the week to shut down the Nigerian satellite orbit, so that there will be no communication in the country if needs arise.
3. No flights out of Nigeria for 3 days
Within our three (3) days operations, NO airplane should fly out of the country because it can target such object no matter how small or big it may be. Our Fighter Expert Team shall be positioned in the six (6) Niger Delta states, who are already arrived the region from training through our country’s porous borders with our foreign partners who are going to showcase what they have learnt in past on year.
4. Nigerian military’s departure can avert disaster
Our struggle is not for any human blood, but we have been pushed to the wall for justice because our patience is running out on daily basis as Nigerian uniform men killing our innocent people continuously. Nigerian military should as a matter of urgency leave peacefully the Ijaw communities they are presently in, the next 48 hours under the guise of searching for the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) or else we should not be blamed of whatever catastrophe that may befall on such officers and the likely affected families of the officers should blame not the region.
5. Uniformed men would be shot at sight
We have consulted our war gods (deities) that enough is enough and that the time has come. Since the present Pharaoh of Nigeria, President Buhari is to preside over the disintegration of the country it is a good omen. Henceforth, any attack on Ijaw communities or person(s) by the military or para-military body in the region, we will not hesitate to order our shoot-at-sight squad of any uniform personnel in the region.
6. They want resignation of Service Chiefs
We ask all Service Chiefs including Minister of Defence to shamefully resign their positions because Nigeria has no security in whatever form. Bravo to our Foreign Marine Crack Team for their ability to shut down Nigerian obsolete surveillance equipments.
7. Niger Delta Avengers not in Delta state
For the records, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) are not in Delta state, we only go there to strike and return back safely to the struggle base, Bayelsa state.
