Niger Delta Avengers threaten Buhari, vow to cripple oil sector
The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has warned it would resume attacks on oil installations and facilities in the region.
Mr. Murdoch Agbinibo, Spokesperson of the militant group, said on Wednesday in a statement on their website that the attacks would be the “most deadly and will be targeting the deep sea operations of the multinationals.”
Calling for the restructuring of Nigeria, the group said their plan to attack oil facilities in the oil-rich region of the country is due to killings and division happening in some parts of the country.
The high command of the Avengers, he said, summoned a meeting of all our operatives from across the Niger Delta to review the progress of our operations so far and deliberate on the planned actions for the future.
At the meeting held on Monday, he said: “It was agreed in that the killings and division presently playing out in Nigeria along divergent grounds makes this the perfect time to restructure this country.
“Our demand unambiguously is for the government to restructure this Country,” he said.
“On the 15th of January 2018 is the 62nd Remembrance Day of the 1956 discovery of commercial oil by Shell Darcy in the now forgotten and dejected Oloibiri Community in the Niger Delta.
