The Niger Delta Avengers have again declared a total war on Nigeria in Niger Delta area, this was made known on their official website in a statement signed by their spokesman, Major General Murdoch Aginibo on Friday, November 3, 2017.
It said Federal Government was not sincere but only interested in exploration of its oil at the detriment of its people.
In its direct statement to the Federal Government it said further;
â€œTo the Nigerian Government, we are aware of Egina FPSO built in South Korea by Samsung to be operated by Total Nigeria is one of the biggest FPSO built in South Korea has started it’s voyage to the oil fields of the Niger Delta to further exploit us while our concerns are left unattended. We are presently tracking and monitoring it’s movement; and God willing it shall not operate successfully in amidst the return of the fury of the Niger Delta Avengers.
Message to the Oil Companies; Our next line of operation will not be like the 2016 campaign which we operated successfully without any casualties; this outing will be brutish, brutal and bloody, as we are shall crush everything we meet on our path to completely put off the fires that burn to flair gas in our communities and cut every pipe that moves crude away from our region. We can assure you that every oil installation in our region will feel warmth of the wrath of the Niger Delta Avengers.
To you the operators of the social media Avengers (RNDA), be reminded that the Niger Delta Avengers are not the same as the toothless and cowardly MEND; we are men of our words and may it resonance in thy ears and deep down your bowels and that of your partner’s in government whose interest is the suffering of the people of the Niger Delta that we (The Niger Delta Avengers) are back and will not spare anything or anyone on our path to actualize a united and free Niger Delta.
According to John F Kennedy; Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
Maj. Gen Murdoch Agbinibo.
Reactions have started trailing the threat from the Niger Delta Avengers, the President of Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, Dr. Frank Jacob was first to react to the resolve of the militant group against the nation.
He described the situation as unfortunate, noting that an attack on oil installations at a time when Nigeria was still recovering from arguably its worst economic crisis, would deal a huge blow to its economy.
He said, â€œIt is unfortunate if that is what the NDA wants to do, especially at this time that the economy is getting out of recession, when oil production is becoming steady and price of oil is going up.
â€œIt will deal a terrible blow to the country and it is my hope that the government wonâ€™t allow that to happen. The government should engage them, find out what their issues are and find a way to address them because if they succeed, it might be disastrous for the economy.â€
Jacobs also said the effects of such attacks would be greatly felt by manufacturers, who rely on foreign exchange to bring in raw materials and machinery.
Similarly, the Director-General of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Muda Yusuf, said should the militants carry out their threats, â€œit will cause a setback for Nigeria.â€
