Forget Niger Delta, face North East for your oil, Avengers tell FG

Tension grips oil firms in Niger Delta as Avengers renew threat
Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), has again threatened that government will not be able to export a litre of crude from the region any time soon.
This is even as they called on President Muhammadu Buhari to quicken oil exploration in the North East.
It said even if President Buhari acquires all the drones in Europe and United States, it will not stop it from bringing the country’s economy to zero. 
the group added that the “worse you (Buhari) can do is to kill poor innocent people which the military is good at.”
The group said this in statement titled, “Your drones won’t stop us,” which was released by its spokesperson, self-styled Brig Gen Mudoch.
He said, “Also note that 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 NDA intelligence agency gathered that the said peace talk or dialogue by the Federal Government is a delay tactic employed by the 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 a fraud. They are not serious about any dialogue and made it seem 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 will not 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.”
Movement for the Actualisation of Niger Delta (MEND), accepted it is in dialogue with Federal Government, but said criminals like Avengers were not included in the dialogue.
