Militant group Niger Delta Avenger (NDA) has accused the military of deceiving Nigerians by publishing ‘false’ videos supposedly showing the Nigerian military bombarding targeted illegal bunkering camps in the Niger Delta region.
The NDA has described the action of the Nigerian military as unprofessional and also a ploy to intimidate them with jet bombers, adding that they will not be intimidated, even if more jet bombers are deployed to the region.
“They can deploy fourth generation jet-bombers and that will not stop us from fighting for our people. We hereby challenge the military to share with the public the militants killed in the so-called air strike. We are very sure that they won’t share the images of militants killed because non was killed except innocent women and children,” said Brig. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, the Avengers spokesman.
“What we are saying is that the country should be restructured. The call for restructuring of Nigeria has gone beyond the NDA. The only group of persons against the restructuring is the Villa. The federal government should just listen to the voice of the citizens instead of playing the deaf ear game.
“We are officially saying that @agbiniboND is our new official twitter account handle. Twitter can block or suspend our account but they can’t stop or block our struggle, they further said in a one page statement made available to the media.
The Militants have vowed to bomb more oil pipelines in the region and have urged President Buhari to listen to reason instead of “threatening us on the pages of newspapers.”
