Yorubas threaten Ijaws over Avengers’ vow to attack Lagos



Nigeria's crude supply may drop again as Avengers issue quit notice to IOCs 
A Yoruba group, the Odua Defenders Union, ODU, Monday, said it was an insult on the Yoruba race for the new militant group,  the Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, to have threatened to attack Lagos in a matter of days.
ODU, in a statement signed by its President-General, Rabak Anthony, warned of the dangers ahead if Ijaw militants decided to carry out their threat to attack Lagos or any part of Yorubaland.
“This threat, published in all the media, both electronic and print, cannot be taken for granted. Therefore, the Yoruba are ready to make the first move against the Ijaws in Lagos before their ‘brothers’ will storm Lagos.
“We fought the Ijaws here in Lagos before because of this their arrogance and they know we are ready for them. They came here about five years ago also to attack the Atlas Cove where Naval officers guarding tank farms were killed.
“So, we are not taking this threat without preparation. We are ready, let them make the move.”
The ODU leader further said its members spread across the whole South-West and can deal with the militants threat, asking the security agents to go after the Niger Delta Avengers because the Yoruba youths are prepared to face them and other Ijaws militants in Lagos.
