Niger Delta Avengers threaten further attacks; warn ex-militants against meddling

Niger Delta Avengers, a faceless group of militant agitators in Nigeria’s South-south region have threatened to resume hostilities after a ceasefire agreement facilitated by stakeholders in the region.

In a release made available to YNaija today, the group’s spokesperson, Col. Mudoch Agbinibo, denied involvement in the Agip pipeline bombingon Saturday, May 21, 2016, but threatened to resume attacks.

According to the group: “An illustrious Ijaw son of the Niger Delta facilitated the 14 day cessation of hostilities between the Niger Delta Avengers and the federal government. It is however pertinent to note that he too has been betrayed as his contact with the federal government stopped midway and flew out of the country… We have lost faith in the federal government’s ability to deal with the people of the Niger Delta. The federal government and the rest of Nigeria shall witness the unfolding of our plans.”
