Niger Delta Avengers claims responsibility for South-West attacks


The Niger Delta Avengers has said it was involved in militant activities and attacks in the South-West.

The militant group while claiming responsibility for the activities in Arepo communities and others in Lagos and Ogun states accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being against calls for Nigeria to be restructured.

In a statement issued by its spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo, the Niger Delta Avengers warned the Federal Government that the recent attacks on militant hideouts would not stop the group from fighting for their people.





The Air Force and other security agencies had started an aerial bombardment of “criminal hideouts and camps that were harbouring pipelines and vandals” at Arepo and its environs on July 28.

The Avengers, however, accused the military of killing innocent women and children during their air raid.

It said, “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 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.”

The Avengers also called for the country to 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.”
