No going back on October 1 independence declaration, Avengers vow

Published

The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), has vowed that it is going ahead to declare the Independence of Niger Delta on October 1, 2016.
The group insisted that its decision is still sacrosanct, warning that should the Nigeria government fail to restructuring the country, “we want to warn the general public that the day of reckoning is close for those using NDA to defraud people.”
This is contained in a statement the group released on its website on Thursday and signed by its spokesperson, Mudoch Agbinibo.
“Our prayer for Buhari and the Northern hypocrite is that oil should be found in commercial quantity in the North, so they can let the Niger Delta go. The Buhari-led government has fail Nigerians with their misdirected policies that has divide the country, as such nobody wants to be part of that failed state not even the Niger Delta.
“The October 1st declaration of independence is still sacrosanct. If the Nigeria government fails to retrace its step by restructuring this country, we want to warn the general public that the day of reckoning is close for those using NDA to defraud people.”
Avengers had in a similar statement in May 2016 threatened that by October 2016 it will display its currency, flag, passport, ruling council and our territory to the world.
The group noted in that statement that all it needed from the United Nations is freedom the people of the Niger Delta from environmental pollution, slavery, and oppression, adding that it wants a country that will turn the creeks of the Niger delta to a tourism heaven, a country that will achieve its full potentials, a country that will make health care system accessible by everyone.
