The Niger Delta Avengers have denied claims by the Nigerian military that it has decimated the Avengers through aerial bombardments with jets and drones.
This was contained in statement released by their spokesperson, self-styled Brig. General Mudoch Agbinibo on Thursday, August 4, 2016.
General Agbinibo, saying that the military is using “fourth generation jet-bombers” said it will not stop them from fighting their course.
He ‘challenge the military to share with the public the militants killed in the so-called sir strike’, if any.
The statement reads:
“The Nigeria Military is playing some war game on some illegal bunkering camps and showing video of how they carry out the bombardment.
That is so unprofessional don’t think they can intimidate the NDA with those scrap jet bombers.
They can deploy fourth generation jet-bombers that will not stop us from fighting for our people.
We challenge the military to share with the public the militants killed in the so-called sir strike.
We are very sure they won’t share the images of militants killed because none was killed except innocent women and children.
What we are saying is 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.”
Also, in a similar vein, in a statement issued on Tuesday, July 26, the Avengers affirmed that nothing will stop them, not even the drones.
In a statement titled “Your drones won’t stop us”, General Agbinibo said:
“The NDA 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 that are said to arrive latest end of August from the United State.
This whole thing makes us to wonder what kind of country is this?
We can all see that President Buhari led government is fraud.
They are not serious about any dialogue and made it seems the Niger Delta Avengers are the ones not ready for dialogue.
Mr. President you can purchase all the drones in Europe and Untied State.
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 which the military is good at but know the Nigeria Economy will suffer.
Also noted, 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.”
The Avengers are waging an economic war against the federal government in what it termed “Operation Zero Economy”.
This they hope to achieve through series of multiple destruction of oil pipelines using Improvised Explosive Devices [IEDS].
