A Niger Delta militant group known as Adaka Boro Avengers has vowed to go on rampage in seven days.
The group in a statement signed by a self-styled General Edmos Ayayeibo on Thursday, said they gave the Federal Government and the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) seven days to immediately ask all multinational oil companies operating in the Niger Delta region “to evacuate our territory”.
The statement titled “Avengers to go on Rampage”, gave the Federal Government and NUPENG seven days to “immediately ask all multinational oil companies operating in the Niger Delta region to evacuate our territory”.
The statement reads: “Failure will lead us to go on rampage with all (NUPENG) workers and all oil installations. This time around we shall leave no stone unturned.
“We want all Nigerians to know how we will surprise the President of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) Mr Igwe Achese on how he want to cause crisis in the Niger Delta region. By asking the Federal government of Nigeria to engage the service of a security outfit managed by some ex-militants in the Niger Delta for the security of crude oil facilities in region, his words is a slap to the the Niger Delta Agitators.
“We shall let him know that the Niger Delta is not a place for him to set fire. Rather we will go after the lives of his worker’s and the so called oil installations in the region. This is a sound warning to all multinational oil companies operating in region to for their own interest for now, until matters are resolved in the region.
“Failure to adhere to this warning we will go on rampage for the total destruction of workers and oil installations they will have their selves to be blamed. It has also come to our notice that President Muhammadu Buhari is not ready for any meaningful dialogue process in the Niger Delta.
“Since our representation (sic) Papa E. Kiagbodo Clark and the King Diete Spiff led groups summits (sic) the 16 points agendas (sic) to President Buhari, he as not shown any sign of engaging the leaders and the leaders in any piece process.
“The Adaka Boro Avengers give Kudos to the minister of petroleum Dr Ibe Kachuku for his tirelessly efforts in combing (sic) the crisis in the Niger Delta region, indeed he his (sic) a son of the soul (sic). But we want all our leaders from the Niger Delta region, especially Papa E. Kiagbodo Clark, King Alfred Diete Spiff and the Mister of Petroleum Dr Ibe Kachuku to please step aside for us to take the bull by the horn.
“We are tired of talks only. The future of us and our unborn children is been taking (sic) to feed the whole country on daily basis. Yet we are listening to Buhari and his APC talks. Deadline of the seven days ultimatum will be total war across all states in the Niger Delta region.”
