Niger Delta Avengers has issued a fresh threat, saying it will destroy the country’s economy and described President Muhammadu Buhari as a fraud for saying his government has initiated a peace talk with them.
According the official spokesman of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), Mudoch Agbinibo, the militant group responsible for most of the attacks on oil installations, has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government of hypocrisy.
The group said information available at Avengers’ disposal has it that the government has been acquiring drones which it intends to use to fight the group, adding that the peace talks initiated by the government is a delay tactics pending the arrival of the drones.
Agbinibo said in a statement that the plan of the current administration would not work, adding that the government should focus on oil exploration in the north because very soon “one litre of crude” would not be lifted from the Niger Delta.
“The intelligence agency gathered that the said peace talk or dialogue by the federal government is a delay tactic employed by the federal government to enable their purchased drones arrive from the United States latest by the end of August.
“This whole thing makes us to wonder what kind of country is this. We can all see that President Buhari-led government is fraudulent. They are not serious about any dialogue but make it seem that the Niger Delta Avengers are the ones not ready for dialogue.
“Mr. President you can purchase all the drones in Europe and Untied States but it won’t stop the Niger Delta Avengers from bringing the country’s economy to zero.
“The worse you can do is to kill poor innocent people, the military is good at that, but know the Nigerian economy will suffer. Also note that you will not be able to export one litre of crude in the Niger Delta. Just intensify the oil exploration in the north-east as for the ones in the Niger Delta forget about it because the Nigeria government won’t export a drop from our land.”
