The militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, ‘(NDA) has vowed to declare the Niger Delta region an independent entity on October 1, 2016.
In a statement released on the website of the Avengers on Thursday, August 18, Mudoch Agbinibo, spokesman of the Avengers, said that the Niger Delta no longer wants to be part of Nigeria.
“Our prayer for Buhari and the Northern hypocrite (Northern Governors) is that oil should be found in commercial quantity in the North, so they can let the Niger Delta go.
The Buhari Led government has fail Nigerians with their misdirected policies that has divide the country, as such nobody wants to be part of that failed state not even the Niger Delta.
The October 1st, declaration of independence is still sacrosanct. If the Nigeria government fails to retrace it’s step by restructuring this country.
We want to warn the general public that those using NDA to defraud people days of reckoning is close.”
In May, 2016 the group had said: “By October 2016, we will display our currency, national flag, passport, our ruling council and our territory to the world.”
For about a few weeks now the group has been giving mixed signals regarding dialogue with the federal government.
The militant group which has claimed responsibility for major attacks on oil facilities in the region in recent times also denied knowing the self-acclaimed spokesman for the dialogue group, Ballantyne Agiri.
