Niger Delta Militants Resurface, Threaten To Attack Lagos, Abuja Over Alleged Marginalisation

Share This

.vow to destroy oil facilities, cripple nation’s economy.

Some Niger Delta militants, on Tuesday, threatened to destroy public infrastructure in Lagos and Abuja over the alleged continued marginalisation of the region by the Federal Government.

In a video posted by AIT, the militants under the aegis of Supreme Egbesu Liberation Fighters, who wore military uniform and covered their faces with masks, accused the Federal Government of marginalising the region and failing to deliver on the amnesty programme.

Spokesperson of the militants, who read a statement on behalf of the group, expressed regret that long after they agreed to the government’s amnesty pact, “there are no schools, no potable water, no light, no hospital and access roads for our people to enjoy” till date.

According to him, “Over the years, the Niger Delta people have made frantic efforts to create an enabling environment but to our great dismay, the Nigerian government over the years has decided to handle the issues of the Niger Delta with kid gloves.

“They have betrayed the struggle and have left the people to their fate.

“Rather, what is visible is the presence of military gunboat and the numerous military personnel dispersed to the Niger Delta who are killing, raping, and maiming the innocent people of the region.

“Look at the security surveillance contract taking place in our region through the federal government these agencies in place have decided to shortchange our people. Now in our territorial waters, it is an Israeli company that is providing waterway security which we have competent hands with expert knowledge to manage.

“Don’t worry, because we are coming to destroy all your infrastructure in Abuja and Lagos. As a group committed to giving total liberation to our people, we will destroy the oil facilities both onshore and offshore in no distant time, we will be seen to be crippling the Nigerian economy.”
