New militant group to FG: Give us Niger Delta State, or else...,
The renewed militancy in the oil rich Niger Delta keeps getting worse by the day, as a new militant group Thursday, emerged to swell the rank.
The group, which calls itself Asawana Deadly Force of Niger Delta, ADFND, threatened to cripple the oil industry across the nine Niger Delta states unless the Federal Government grants them “Niger Delta Republic in the next couple of days.”
A statement released by the leader of the group, Commander Olomubini Kakarakokoro, a.k.a No Mercy, said the group will reduce oil production to zero percent except their demand was granted.
The statement reads: “Except our demand for Niger Delta Republic is granted, without further notice to the Federal Government, we shall proceed to bomb Bonga field flow station, Asaba- Onistha Bridge, Third Mainland Bridge and other major bridges in the Southtern part of the country, just for a start.
“The Federal Government should as a matter of urgency, withdraw all the military check points from the riverside areas of the Niger Delta, else we shall proceed to match against any baby military formation in the region without further notice.
“We are most dreaded, deadly and dangerous group in Niger Delta. Our team is comprised of specialists in different fields of war, and is poised to win the struggle for a Niger Delta State. Our struggle is not for monetary benefit or the so-called monthly N65,000 amnesty stipend. It is for the liberation and the development of the Niger Delta region.
“We therefore, warn every other group or persons as regards the fake dialogue process embarked upon by the Federal Government to know that they are not doing that for us. We are taking over from our brothers, the Niger Delta Avengers.
“As we speak, all preparations and plans are on ground to strike and bring down the crude oil production to 0%, irrespective of the military presence in the region. The Federal Government will hear from us.”
